Review of Waddesdon: Waddesdon in the county of Bucks is a historic farming area based roughly 9.5 km to the west of the town of Aylesbury, it has a parish church first built in the thirteenth century. Waddesdon is perhaps most famous as being the location of the Rothschild dynasty owned, sixteenth century Renaissance style, Waddesdon Manor (today administered by the National Trust), bringing countless visitors to the area.

Many of the buildings erected by the Rothschilds (the Five Arrows hotel, the village hall, & houses built for manor personnel) continue to dominate Waddesdon today and therefore lived in and cherished by its populace of about 2,097 (2011). Until the 1930's reachable from near by Aylesbury via rail, Waddesdon rail station has long been closed & the village may only be accessed by road (namely the A41). The parish (coupled with Westcott, Woodham, Eythrope and Wormstone) covers about seven thousand acres.

Waddesdon Manor BuckinghamshireWaddesdon Over the Centuries: Definitely a Saxon settlement up until the Norman conquest, the manor of Waddesdon was possessed by Brictric, one of Queen Edith's men, in those far off, mostly undocumented days. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the manor was documented as controlled by Miles Crispin and being worth twenty seven hides. The manor of Waddesdon eventually passed on to John, 7th Duke of Marlborough during the nineteenth century, having swapped hands repeatedly over the previous centuries. In eighteen seventy four the Duke of Marlborough sold off his whole Bucks estate, including Waddesdon & surrounding areas, to Ferdinand de Rothschild, a politician (he was High Sheriff of Bucks & Liberal Member of Parliment for Aylesbury), art enthusiast & the affluent Rothschild banking dynasty of Austria.

Waddesdon Manor: Ferdinand de Rothschild proceeded to construct the outstanding Waddesdon Manor House, from a layout by Gabrielle-Hippolyte Destailleur, in the Renaissance style of a sixteenth century French chateau, right down to the wine cellars. Ferdinand passed away in 1898, his estate and manor inherited by his sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild. Waddesdon Manor House was entrusted to the National Trust following the death of James de Rothschild in the late 1950's, it thereafter came to be a well-known visitor hotspot. Present day Waddesdon Manor delivers enormous gardens, an internationally acclaimed collection of furniture, paintings and ornamental arts, a plant centre, a Rococo style aviary, gift shops, a quality wine cellar, meeting rooms, a marriage venue (The Dairy at Waddesdon), a childrens area, gift shops and top notch restaurants. Countless events and activities can be attended at Waddesdon Manor and grounds all year long for example food markets, art events, carol singing, wine tasting events, and horticultural shows.

Other than the modern title the community of Waddesdon has also been referred to as Votesdone (11th century) and Woddesdon (14th C), through the centuries it has primarily depended on farming. During the 18th century it briefly had a go at silk manufacturing, when a small factory founded in 1843 used as an offshoot of the larger factory in neighbouring Aylesbury. Lace manufacture was also carried out by lots of the women of the parish in the mid to late 19th century. The building of Waddesdon's parish church Saint Michael & All Angels was started in 1190, it was expanded and embellished repeatedly through the centuries, particularly through the medieval and Victorian periods. The Font dates from around 1400, the church tower was renewed in 1892, taking the place of the previous one erected in the fourteenth century.
