Doxey is a village and civil parish in the borough of Stafford in Staffordshire, England. It is a north-western suburb of Stafford. The village became a civil parish on April 1, 2005.
There is some uncertainty about the origin of the name Doxey but it seems that it was originally Dokesei (This may be "Ducks Island" - a reference to the fact that the centre of Doxey would have been surrounded by marsh). In the Domesday Book it is spelt Dochesig.
