* These Vicars (father and son) were Lords of the Manor of Headington. Thomas Henry Whorwood senior (who had appointed himself Vicar of Headington in 1804) also appointed himself Vicar of Marston in 1806, the year he succeeded his father as Lord and came to live in the Manor House in Osler Road. He held both posts until his death in 1835. He had originally intended that his eldest son of the same name should succeed him as Vicar of Headington and his younger son, William Henry, as Vicar of Marston; but the latter disgraced himself, and so Marston got the elder son instead (until he was appointed Vicar of Willoughby in Warwickshire in 1849).
