EDLESBOROUGH, in the hundred of Cotslow and deanery of Muresley, lies on the borders of Bedfordshire, under the Chiltern hills, near the ancient Ickeneld-Street; about four miles and a half south-west of Dunstaple.
The manor of Bates, in Edlesborough, which had been long attached to that of the neighbouring parish of Eaton-Bray in Bedfordshire, [Footnote: Bates has been attached to the manor of Eaton-Bray, since the time of Sir Reginald Bray, and probably at a much earlier period.] is the property of William Beckford esq.
In the chancel are some brasses of a large size, among which is that of Sir John Swynshide, rector of Edlesborough, who died in 1390: in the north chancel or Rufford's aisle, are some tombs of the family of Rufford.
The Parish of Edlesborough is a rural community at the eastern edge of the Vale of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, which includes the villages of Northall and Dagnall as well as the village of Edlesborough itself.
Since the closure of the picturesque 13th Century church of St Mary the Virgin, Edlesborough, the parish has been ecumenically linked with the adjoining parish of Eaton Bray in Bedfordshire.
This is the official website of EdlesboroughParish Council and is primarily a "notice board" for Parish Council business matters.
