Cut was subsequently lendtred inde-
p ndeiit aod existed till ilie time of Henry VI H, when
it shared the fate of other religious estatilisliments.
Aft.r the death of Chailes I., the E irl of Holland
niiistei'ed afotee liere in favour of the royal cause ; but,
being defeated in a battle byCrom well's soldiers in 1()48,
and after\va;(ls taken prisoner, wiihont resistance, at
St. Ives, he suffered on the scalTold. The town con-
sists of thiee piincipal stieets, anil an exiensive mar-
ket pi ee ; the hi'.;h roads from Biggleswade lo Hun-
lingilon, and to Ciinhridge, |)assing ilnough the main
thoroiiglifiies. The greater part of the town being
only a few feet above the ordinal y level of the river,
inntidations were formei ly consequent upon sudden
thaws, or very heavy rains, to such an extent, as to
render a nav gallon of the siretts not merely juac-
licable but necessaiy ; but great iinproveinents having
been effected, in the consti uttion of the bridges, lo
giiher with drains, tliis evil is, in a great ineaMire,
reimdied. '1 le' only iiianufactuie here, except that of
malt, is paper, for which lain r there is an extensive
mill upon the river, with Foiirdrinier's patent ma-
chines for making that aiticle. The river Ouse is
nivigalde from the jiort of Lynn to this place, ami
thence lo Bedford ; and a trade of some coiisei|iience
is carried on upon it, in coin, wine, coal, iron, timber,
groceries, &c., fir tlie consunii>tioii of the town and





village and jiaiish of Eaton Socon, situated on the
western b ink of the river Uiise, on the main road
from London totlienoith ; and before the opening of
railways, was a place of great thorougbfaie, and flou-
rishing. There was formerly a castle belonging to the
Beanchamps, and a priory founded by one of that
family; of the latter, the only portion remaining is
the refectory, nnw converted into stables. Tlie church
is dedicated" to Saint Mary : the living is a discharued
vicarage, in liie patronage of John Hill Day, Ksq. The
parish (includingWvBOSTON) contained, in 18;U, 2,490
inhabitants, and in 1841, 2,600.

'I'his is a place of considerable antiquity, and at one
period of some consequence, Tiiere are fragments of
a monastic building, and an epi^copal palace — the
latter a venerable structure, formerly the residence of
the bishops of Lincoln, to one of whom, the abbot of
Kly, in tlie reign of Henry L granted tlie manor of
Buckden. The church of Saint Mary (which contains
the remains of some of the bislmps), is a neat edifice,
with a tower, surmounted by a light and elegant spire.
The living is a discliaiged vicarage, in the gift of The
See of i/nicoln. Theie is a place of worship for VV'es-
leyan Methodists, and a charity school — the latter

Buckden is a village and parish, in llie same hun- founded and endowed by Dr. Greenlate, bishop of
dred as S.iint Neots, situated about midway between Lincoln, in 1778. Population of the parish, in 1831,
that town and Huntingdon, on the great north road. I 1,095, and in 1841,1,209.
