ASTON CLINTON, with the Hamlet of ST. LEONARDS.
Aston Clinton is an extensive parish and village, situate 3 miles E. from Tring, on the road from that place to Aylesbury, from which latter town it is 4 miles distant; it is in the three hundreds, and union of Aylesbury. The well known Chiltern Hills run through the parish. Here is the noble demesne of Sir Anthony Rothschild Bart., formerly the residence of the celebrated Lord Lake. The Mansion has been entirely rebuilt within the last six years by its present owner, who has greatly enlarged the building and ornamented the grounds with a splendid bridge, fountains, etc., while the internal decoration of this beautiful residence may fairly vie with anything of the kind in the country. The Park, which encloses the estate is watered by a fine trout stream. The church, a neat and ancient structure, underwent thorough repair a few years ago, when the old-fashioned pews were removed and open seats substituted; the edifice comprises nave, two aisles, and recently rebuilt chancel, with a tower and six bells. A circuit of lime trees surrounds the churchyard, where is interred the remains of George Rowland Minshull, Esq., the celebrated magistrate of Bow Street; a monument marks his resting-place, while in the church are several to members of his family. Rookery Park, now occupied by Mr John Taylor, bailiff to Sir A. Rothschild, was the residence of the Minshulls, and still contains several paintings of this ancient family. The living is a rectory, annual value 600, in the deanery of Wendover and patronage of Jesus College, Oxford; the Rev Charles Watkins Wynne Eyton B.D., is rector. Here is a Baptist Chapel, rebuilt in 1840, and greatly enlarged in 1862; also a National School, chiefly supported by the rector, and a Sunday School. The inhabitants are principally employed in straw plaiting. Baron Rothschild is lord of the manor. Area of the township of Aston Clinton 2670 acres; population in 1861,1108.
St. Leonards is a scattered hamlet in the parish, situate 4 miles S. from Aston Clinton. The chapel is a beautiful and interesting old pile, formerly a chantry to the abbey of Missenden; it contains a number of monuments and tablets to many old families, and several suits of fine old armour; and was restored and decorated, a few years ago, by public subscription. The living is a perpetual curacy, value 100 per annum, which sum is derived from the rent of a farm; the trustees of the chapel are patrons of the living, and the Rev. John Day, incumbent. In 1861 the hamlet contained 189 inhabitants; area in acres 970.
