Thornton is a village and civil parish on the River Great Ouse about 3.5 miles (5.6 km) north-east of Buckingham in the Aylesbury Vale district of Buckinghamshire.
The toponym is derived from the Old English for "thorn tree by a farm". The Domesday Book of 1086 records the village asTernitone.
The earliest record of the Church of England Church of Saint Michael and All Angels dates from 1219. The present building is 14th-century, but was dramatically restored between 1770 and 1800 and largely rebuilt by the Gothic Revival architect John Tarring in 1850. The restorers retained a number of mediaeval features, including the 14th-century belltower, chancel arch and clerestory and 15th century clerestory windows.
