Boarstall  Buckinghamshire

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Boarstall like this:

BOARSTALL, or Borstall, a parish in the district of Bicester, and county of Bucks; in Bernwood forest, on the verge of the county, 6 miles SSE of Bicester r. station. Post Town, Brill, under Tetsworth. Acres, 3,080. Real property, £2,892. Pop., 255. Houses, 53. The property is divided among a few. ...


The manor was obtained, from Edward the Confessor, by the huntsman Nigel, for service done in the forest; and is now held by his descendant, Sir T. D. Aubrey, Bart. Boarstall Tower, the old manor-house, played a conspicuous part in the civil war; and is now a picturesque ruin. The living is a vicarage, annexed to the vicarage of Brill, in the diocese of Oxford. The church was rebuilt in 1818; and contains monuments of the Aubreys.
