Review of Waddesdon: Waddesdon in Bucks is an old agricultural area to be found around six miles west of the large town of Aylesbury, it has a church dating from the thirteenth century. Waddesdon has been essentially an estate village since the late nineteenth century at the time the attractive Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor was established by the well-off Rothschilds family, alongside houses for the employees.

Still dominated by structures built for the Rothschild family (the village hall, the Five Arrows hotel & houses built for manor staff), modern day Waddesdon has a population of about 2,000 (2011). The parish covers about seven thousand acres (combined with Eythrope, Woodham, Wormstone and Westcott). Waddesdon at one time had a train station which connected it to nearby Aylesbury, this has long been shut down & the village can just be got to by road (namely the A41).

Waddesdon ManorWaddesdon in the Past: Before the Norman conquest, Waddesdon was obviously a Saxon village, the manor being held by Brictric, one of Queen Edith's men. In the 1086 Domesday Book the manor was valued at twenty seven hides & noted down as being held by Miles Crispin. Waddesdon manor was owned by several individuals before finally passing to John, 7th Duke of Marlborough during the 19th century, these included Henry of Oxford, the Courtenay family and Thomas Earl of Devon. It was the formerly mentioned 7th Duke of Marlborough (John Spencer Churchill) who, in the late nineteenth century, sold off The parish of Waddesdon and his large Buckinghamshire landed estate to Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild an art collector, politician & part of the successful Rothschild banking family of Austria.

Waddesdon Manor House: Ferdinand de Rothschild subsequently went on to construct the eye-catching Waddesdon Manor House, using a design by Gabrielle-Hippolyte Destailleur, in the style of a 16th century French chateau, wine cellars and all. Ferdinand died in 1898, his estate passing to his sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild. In addition to acting as a family residence Waddesdon Manor was meant to house the considerable collection of tapestries, furniture and art, gathered by the Baron. In 1957, right after the passing of James de Rothschild, the Manor was handed to the National Trust, it later became a recognized tourist destination. Modern day Waddesdon Manor delivers enormous landscaped gardens, a world-renowned collection of furniture, paintings and ornamental arts, a garden centre, a Rococo style aviary, a wine cellar, gift shops, conference areas, a marriage venue (The Dairy at Waddesdon), a children's corner, gift shops and top notch restaurants.

Waddesdon throughout the ages has been a traditionally farming village, it's formerly had the titles Votesdone (11th C) and Woddesdon (14th C), together with the current spelling. In the eighteenth century local people momentarily delved into silk manufacture, a small factory set up in 1843 used as an addition to the larger factory in neighbouring Aylesbury. Lace making was also done by many of the women of the parish during the middle to late nineteenth century. The erection of the parish church St Michael & All Angels was begun in 1190, it was extended and embellished repeatedly through the generations, in particular through the medieval & Victorian periods.
