Tuesday, and two fair- in the year; this fh.irter was is a perpetual curacy, of which the Rev. W. S. Ward
reiieweil iti 1632 ; the market has been disconiinurd is the piesent incuinht-nt. A free school, founded up-



station on tlie Great Western railway : situated at the
extreme south-eastern boundary of Buckinghamshire,
iiext Rliddlfsex, fi(mi which county it is separated by
the Colne — from this stream it derives its name.
This place is of considerable anti()nity, atid was in ex-



some years, but Ihf fairs are still held, one on the
5th of A|)rii and the other on the 3rd of May, for
cattle. The village consists piimipally of one long
strt-et; the houses are, manv of them, v»'ell bnilt, and
the general appearance of the place is neat and respec-
table. Previ-ios to tlie o|)eningof the above-mentioned
great line of railway, this place derived its ra.tin
bu-iiies> from being a chiefthorouehfare betweeti the
metropolis and a number of populous tovvtis in the
west, and tlif consequent incessant passing of stratigers.
Its trade is now only of that character belonging to
other small inland towns, assisted by a highly respec-
table and vveaMiy tieighbourhood. There is a neat
chapel,de(licated to Saint Tliontas.utiderthe establish-
ment, and places of worship for Independents atid
Baptists. The population of the chapelry in 1841
was, 1,050.

Rather more than one mile south of Colnbrook is
the village of Horton. The parents of Milton resided
here; and his mother, who died in 1637, is interiedjin
the church ; the poet himself passed some of his early
years at this place. The parish church of Saint Michael
has a doorway enriched with Saxon mouldings; and
the edificeis surrounded hy a Roman wall. Tiie Coln-
brook cattle (air is held in this parish — the population
of which iti 1841 was, 873.



wards of a cetitnry ago, is now conducted upon the
national plan. The market, gratited at an early peiiod
has long ceased to be observed, but a small fair is lield
on the lOih of July. The population ot the parish in
1841 was, 1,948.

Stoke Poges is a parish in the hundred of Stoke
— the village is 4 miles from Burnhani atid Windsor,
and 5 s.E. frotn Colnbrook. In this village and its
vicinity thei e are many liandsome mansions ; one in
particular, the residence of the Honourable Henry
Labiiuchier, is worthy of being visited. The mounds
f>f the park are ornamented with busts and statues to
the memory of those illustrious chaiacters who have
distinguished themselves in the field, or by other su-
perior attaintnents. The church, a very neat structure,
siatids near the matision. The churchyard possesses
cotisiderable interest,with the admirers of pure poetry,
as, in it was interred the remains of the celebrated
poet Gray; and here he laid the scene of his pathetic
and justly admiied 'Elegy in a diuntry Chuiclnard.'
The late John Penn, Esq. erected a chaste niotiuinent
to the memory of the poet, on a piece of ground con-
tiguous to the cemetery. The living of Stoke is a
vicarage, in the presentation of Lord Francis Godol-
phin Osborie, of Cambridgeshire. The parish num-
bered in 1841, 1,528 inhahitams.
