Would it be Akaimia ? 

Great find, whatever it is! :)

Is this a species of cowshark? It's a neat looking tooth. What time period is it from?

Looks like some sort of cow shark to me

Oxford Clay is Jurassic if I am correct. reminds me of Echinorhinus (Bramble Shark) but wrong time period. Very interesting tooth.

 

 

Edit: There are known Hexanchidae from the Jurassic my mistake. So this does make this a possibility. @Darktooth

I think Notidanus can be found there.

Thank you for the help, I appreciate it! I have more micro-Paleontological residue to sift today so there is the potential for more finds..
