There are ancient records of more than one mill on or close to the River Thame south-east of Waddesdon, though both have long gone. A mill was recorded at Eythrope in 1291 and later there is a 1640 record, when Thomas East was the owner. A second mill was located to the west of Eythrope, at Beachendon, where a mill was recorded as early as 1198. The exact location of both mills is not known, but they were thought to be on the northern loop of the Thame at an approximate grid reference of SP 770 135
