The 1798 Land Tax registers provide the names of owners and occupiers of land. While no property details are given, the assessment for tax is generally shown. It may well be possible to identify particular properties by cross referencing the Land Tax registers and the later 1808 enclosure award in the expectation that many properties will still be in the same ownership.
Each of the three villages in the parish have their own register. I've produced two sets of names for each village, one of owners, the other of occupiers of land which is not their own. My (almost) transcript of each register is available as a PDF file. These files, in strict alphabetic order, show the connections between owners and occupiers as well as the tax assessment for each property which, again, may help with identification.
For some curious reason, like the 1808 enclosure award, the names of land-owners are not in strict alphabetic order in the registers. Scanned images of the actual registers are available on the subscription-based service ancestry.co.uk.

Ancestry.co.uk shows two separate register listings for Clifton. I take it that one (the shorter) is for Clifton Hampden.
