Oxfordshire Cheese

Cheeses
Historic

Now lost, but known from several literary references.

Johnothan Swift's Polite Conversation of 1757 has;

Here a loud and large laugh
Col: Faith my Lord you serv'd the coxcomb right enough and therefore I wish we had a bit of your Lordship's Oxfordshire cheese
Ld Smart: Come hang saving, bring us up a half p'orth of cheese
Lady Answ: They say cheese digests every thing but itself
