BIERTON, with the hamlets of Broughton and Burcott, is an extensive village, forming a parish, in the hundreds of Aylesbury, and union of the same, situate 1 1/2 miles N.E. from Aylesbury. The parish is intersected by the Grand Junction Canal and the Aylesbnry branch of the London and North Western Railway. The church, dedicated to St. James, is a cruciform structure, dating from the twelfth century; it comprises chancel, nave, aisles, and north and south transepts, with a tower, surmounted by a small spire, containing seven bells and a clock. In the interior is a curious monument to Mr. Samuel Bosse, who died December 21,1616 on which is an inscription that it was erected at the " propper coste and charges of Mrs. Cecily Bosse, the widdowe of the late Mr. Samuel Bosse." The deceased and his wife are represented kneeling opposite to each other, and their children, thirteen in number, in the same position, but arranged, the nine sons behind the father, and the four daughters behind the mother. In the chancel is an ancient piscina. The living is a vicarage, to which is annexed the curacy of Quarrendon, value 100, in the deanery of Aylesbury, and patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln; the Rev. Joseph Crane Wharton, M.A., is incumbent. The Baptists and Wealeyans have each chapels in the village; here is a National School. In 1793 Mr. Hill gave property for the foundation of a fund for clothing poor men and educating and apprenticing poor boys, Other charities connected with the parish produce about 50 yearly. The population in 1861 was 691; area in statute acres, 2470. This place is celebrated for the quantities of white ducks that are annually bred by the labouring class, and sent to the London market. Some of the owners in the breeding season will possess two or three hundred young ducks at one time. Here is the extensive firm of Durley and Son, builders and contractors, employing many intelligent mechanics, who reside in the village, and have given an improved moral tone to the working men of the parish. The manufacture of cattle food has also been successfully introduced by Mr. Thomas Nash.
