Lamport (occasionally also Langport) is a hamlet in the parish of Stowe in north Buckinghamshire, England.

The hamlet's name is Old English and means long town. The hamlet was originally part of Luffield Abbey but was annexed to Stowe to provide homes for the staff and servants of the new manor there.

In the early Fifteenth century the ancient manor at Lamport came into the possession of the Dayrell family, introducing them to the local area. Their name lives on today in the village name of Lillingstone Dayrell.
