  1. Simpson

    Simpson is a village and civil parish in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England. It was one of the former villages of Buckinghamshire that was included in the New City in 1967. It is located south of the centre, just north of Fenny Stratford, near Walton. It is the only parish of this name in the United Kingdom,. The village name is an Old English language word, and means 'Sigewine's farm'. It was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Siwinestone', In the mid 19th century the village was described as "in appearance, one of the most wretched of many miserable villages in the county". This was due to the author's approach to the village being blocked in the winter time by a ford 200 yards wide, and three feet deep. This ford was fixed in the 1860s when the road was raised by three and a half feet by Charles Warren, the owner of Simpson House.
