ELLESBOROUGH is a parish in the hundred of Aylesbury, union of Wycombe, situate 2 1/2 miles W. by S. of Wendover. It was formerly a place of considerable importance, and is mentioned by Lambard in the 16th century as
follows: - " It should seme by H. Huntington that it was of more accompte in auncient tyme, than it is at this day, for he nombrethe it amongest the chief townes of that parte." The parish contains an area of 3310 acres, with a population in 1861 of 724. Chequers Court, the seat of Lady Frankland Russell, is one of the most beautiful places in the county, and is supposed to have derived its name from having been the Exchequer in the reign of John. With the exception of the south front, which is modern, the present mansion, with its gables and bay window remains as it was repaired by Mr. William Hawtrey, its possessor in the reign of Elizabeth. His initials (W. H.) still remain on the north front, with a haw-tree between them and chequers on each side. The house contains the most valuable collection of portraits and relics of Oliver Cromwell and his family in existence; they are found here in consequence of the marriage in 1664 of Sir John Russell with Frances, youngest daughter of the Protector, and widow of Robert Rich. The church is a very ancient structure, of Saxon architecture, dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul. The east wall is Norman, and the interior is fitted up in the Gothic style. It has a square tower with four bells, nave, aisles, and organ. The living is a rectory with residence, value 370, arising from 340 acres of glebe land, in the patronage of Lady Frankland Russell, of Chequers Court. The Rev Joseph Bancroft Reade, M.A. and F.R.s., incumbent. A school for boys and girls was erected some years past by Sir Robert and Lady Russell. There are almshouses for four old men and four old women.
