Review of Waddesdon: A parish and small village placed 9.5 kilometers to the west of the town of Aylesbury, Waddesdon is an age old farming community having a church first constructed in the 13th century. The famed Waddesdon Manor is located near the village, constructed in sixteenth century Renaissance style by the affluent Rothschild family at the end of 19th century.

The village today has a population of around two thousand (2011) and is still peppered with structures constructed for the Rothschild family (houses built for Manor staff, the Five Arrows Hotel & the Village Hall). Waddesdon in former times had a rail station which linked it to near by Aylesbury, this is long shut down & the village can just be reached by road (A41). The parish of Waddesdon covers an area of 7,252 acres (combined with Eythrope, Westcott, Wormstone and Woodham).

Waddesdon Manor HouseWaddesdon's Past History: In the 1086 Domesday Book the manor of Waddesdon was having a value of twenty seven hides & documented as being possessed by Miles Crispin, while before this it was unquestionably a Saxon village & was retained by one of Queen Edith's men, Brictric. Waddesdon manor was controlled by numerous people before ultimately ending up with John Spencer Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough during the 19th century, these included Henry of Oxford and Thomas Earl of Devon. Politician, art collector and a successful Austrian banking family, Ferdinand de Rothschild, bought the large Bucks landed estate of the 7th Duke of Marlborough (John Spencer Churchill) in the late 19th century, including Waddesdon.

Waddesdon Manor: The Renaissance style Waddesdon Manor House was consequently built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, reproducing a sixteenth century French chateau, wine cellars and all. The estate and manor was inherited by Baron Ferdinand's sister, Alice Charlotte de Rothschild, in 1898, after Baron Ferdinand passed away at the Manor itself in 1898, on his 59th birthday. The Manor House was meant both as a family home as well as to house Baron Rothschild's massive collection of art, tapestries and furniture. In the late 1950's, James de Rothschild passed away and Waddesdon Manor House developed into a well-liked tourism attraction once it was bequeathed to the National Trust. Today's Waddesdon Manor delivers considerable gardens, its phenomenal collection of furniture, paintings and ornamental arts, a plant centre, a Rococo style aviary, a wine cellar, gift shops, meeting rooms, a marriage venue (The Dairy at Waddesdon), a child's corner, high-class restaurants and gift shops. Waddesdon Manor of course hosts different functions and events all year long for instance carol singing, food markets, art exhibitions, wine samplings, and horticultural shows.

Over the years, Waddesdon existed as a largely agricultural village and along with the current day name has been known variously as Votesdone (11th C) and Woddesdon (fourteenth century). Apart from agriculture and farming, lace manufacture and silk making are additional ways in which local folks made some money in Waddesdon in the past. Saint Michael and All Angels parish church was first built in about 1190 in Waddesdon, the font dates from about 1400 and the present tower from 1892.
