Synopsis
This book ranges in coverage from the Romano-British settlement; through the times when it stood against the Danes; its many centuries as the county town and seat of the various courts of law; to its more recent periods as a 'Rotten Borough' in the hands of the Grenville family, and as a 19th- and 20th-century market town. Every facet of the town's past is covered up to 1974 when local government changes deprived it of its title of 'Borough'. The fervent loyalty of Buckingham to the crown during the Civil War earned its title 'the Loyal and Ancient Borough'.
