Princes Risborough is an annex of our High Wycombe office.
Princes Risborough is a market town in Buckinghamshire, England, about 9 miles south of Aylesbury and 8 miles north west of High Wycombe. Bledlow lies to the west and Monks Risborough to the east.
Historically it was both a manor and an ecclesiastical parish, of the same extent as the manor, which comprised the present ecclesiastical parish of Princes Risborough (excluding Ilmer) and also the present ecclesiastical parish of Lacey Green, which became a separate parish in the 19th century.
In the 13th century it is found as Magna Risberge (Great Risborough), distinguished from Parva (Little) Risberge which was Monks Risborough. Later it became Earls Risborough due to the manor being held by different Earls of Cornwall between 1242 and 1344 when the manor was then given to Edward, the Black Prince. At some point after Edward’s death it became Princes Risborough.
The right to hold a weekly market and two yearly fairs was granted by King Henry VIII in 1523. The market was to be held on Wednesdays and the fairs on the eve, day and morrow of the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin (8 September) and on the eve, day and morrow of St George’s Day (23 April).
The fact the town has a weekly market has come to define the parish with the words ‘A Medieval Market Town since 1376’, the very same year the Black Prince (the town’s most notable Lord of the Manor) died.
