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'.
