Stanford-on-Teme is a village and parish in the Doddingtree hundred of Worcestershire. Since 1933, the civil parish has also contained the village of Orleton, just under a mile away. The parish forms part of the upper division of Doddingtree Hundred.[1]

Stanford Court, a Grade-II listed 18th-century stately home,[2] is the ancestral home of the Winnington baronets. The house was first built in the reign of King James I. It was extended in the 18th century, and remodelled after a fire in 1882.[3]

Lucy Lyttelton Cameron, the children's author was born here in 1781.[4] She was the daughter of George Butt and his wife and they had another daughter named Mary Martha. The rectory in Stanford was built for George Butt just to the west of the church.[5]
