Tyringham (/ˈtiːrɪŋəm/) is a village in the Borough of Milton Keynes and ceremonial county of Buckinghamshire, England. It is located about a mile and a half north of Newport Pagnell.

The village name is an Old English language word, and means 'Tir's home'. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the village was recorded as Telingham.

There is a theory that the name Tyringham refers to a settlement of Thuringii Germans coming with the Anglo-Saxons in the Dark Ages.[2]

Civil Parish[edit]

Historically, the parish of "Tyringham with Filgrave" (or "Tyringham cum Filgrave") was first created in 1639[3] by the union of two parishes.

The modern civil parish is Tyringham and Filgrave, consisting of these two villages and their surrounding area.[4] At the 2001 census, the population of the parish was 190[5]

Historically, Tyringham on its own once contained only two houses, but was a village in its own right because it had an ecclesiastic parish.
