The parish of Kidlington Green is in Oxfordshire. There was a hollow oak at Kidlington Green, "which, as the jail was at some distance, the judge on the circuit used to convert into a prison, where he confined rogues and malefactors till they could be conveyed to the county-town" ("Giant Trees" - 'The Eclectic Magazine of Foreign Literature, Science, and Art, Volume 54, p. 418).
