COLNBROOK is a small town of great antiquity, formerly possessing a market, situate in the parishes of Iver, Horton, and Langley Marish, in Buckinghamshire, and the parish of Stanwell, in Middlesex. Its distance from London is 17 miles S.W., 5 from Windsor, and 22 1/2 from Reading. The nearest railway station is Slough, 3 1/2 miles from Colnbrook. The Colne, which here divides itself in four streams, and is crossed by as many bridges, forms the boundary of the counties of Middlesex and Buckingham, on the banks of which river the town is seated. A charter of incorporation was granted in the reign of Henry VIII., 1543, under the title of bailiff and burgesses, and renewed in 1632. Among the latest improvements ia a Public Room, erected in 1859, capable of accommodating 300 persons. Lectures are delivered during the winter months, on the various leading topics of the day, by gentlemen residing in the neighbourhood. Part of the building is occupied as a Reading Room, attended by about 80 persona, and the Harmonic Society, numbering about 40 members, meets here on Wednesday evenings. A Penny Saving's Bank, having about 300 depositors, has been established, and the town has been recently lighted with gas. The church was entirely rebuilt a few years ago. The living ia a perpetual curacy, in the gift of Pembroke College, Oxford, and deanery of Burnham, annual value 40, principally derived from an endowment by the Rev. Charles Dashwood Goldie, M.A., who is the present incumbent. There is a lectureship, value 108, at Pembroke College, Oxford, in the presentation of Trustees. The Baptists have a chapel, founded in 1708, and there is a National and a British School. John Milton passed several years of his early life at the adjoining village of Horton, and his mother and wife were buried in the old church at Colnbrook. A plain blue stone on the chancel floor marks the burial place of the latter; on the tablet is the inscription, "Heare lyeth the body of Sarah Milton, the wife of John Milton, who died the 3rd of April, 1637." An old house is still pointed out as the halting place of Queen Elizabeth, who was in the habit of resting here for the night when on her way to Windsor Castle. The population is about 1350.
