There’s nearly 60 known variations of the town and civil parish name, but Aylesbury is the one that’s stuck for now and it has its origin in Old English. “Fort of Aegel” is what the name was meant to mean, but who Aegel was is anybody’s guess.
An Iron Age hill fort was found in the heart of the town which has been dated to the 4th century BC. Ancient Britons settled in Aylesbury and it was a stronghold of sorts for them. In the Anglo-Saxon era it was a significant market town. When the Domesday Book was written Aylesbury was categorised as a royal manor, the reason for that is that the king took the land for himself at the Norman Conquest. In the English civil war the town was also utilised as a stronghold by Parliamentarian forces.
Aylesbury is unquestionably a beautiful place and it’s no surprise that there’s no shortage of history linked to its name, from famous individuals highlighted by statues, such as John Hampden, to the mysterious Aegel to which the town owes its name. The town today is as impressive as ever, with a beautiful mix of modern and historic architecture. And you don’t have to go too far from the centre of town until you’re at the beautiful rolling hills of the Aylesbury Vale.
