BIGGLESWADE AND NEIGHBOURHOOD.



loiGGLESWADE is a paii.sh in the Iiiindied of its
nanie — the iiiHtUt't town is 45 miles n N.w. from Lmi-
don, 20 s.w. friiiii Cambridge, and 11 s.e fioni Hedfoid ;
situated upon the river Ivel, which \\as made naviaahie
fioiii the t iwii to its junction witii the Ouse in 1758,
and up tlie .stieam to Shefford in 1823. The Gieai
Nun hern railway iiichides IBiggleswade in its riiute,
and liere it is iiiiended to errcct a first class station for
tiie line. The town is surrounded by garden grounds
the produce of which forms a profitaldc branch of trade
will) the lame provincial towns around, and extends
even to the nietrnpolis. In ai.cient records this pl.ice
is called ' the Boioiisth and Foicign of ' Dykleswade,'
m Bicheti'siradp ; but the derivation of its name is hi^t
in obscuiity. The site of the Iloniaii station, Chester-
Held, and tiiat of the city of Suleiui, spolieii of by
I'tolemy and Camden, are contiguous to tlie town;



Roman coins, urns, &c. are frequently dug or ploughed
up ; and 'barrows' or /«««e iixire modern
may be said to owe their present appearance chiedy to
the calamity of a fire, in 1785, which destroyed one
hundred ;uid twenty-five dwellings, and the only meet-
ing house then in Bigghswade — il.at of the Baptists,
who, however, in th;' same year erected ano'heredifice.
Connected with the town is a well constructed building
in London road, for the several paiishes forming the
Biggleswade Union. A chatter for a market, also de-
fining the municipal government ol the town, was

13



a^ttufoilr^fjire.

conferred by Edward III ; another was obtained from
Charles II, under w'lich certain tolls are payable.
Bingleswade is a bailiwick and nominally Koverned by
a bail'ff. who is appointed at the Cdurt let-t of Peier
Audley Lovcll, Esq. the lord of the manor. The county



The parish chnrch of Saint Andrew, erected ahont
the year 12;^0, was oiiginally colleciate: it is a
piebendary, and still enjoys its own peculiar ecclesias-
tical jiiri.xdiciioii : the Chancellor ot Lincoln has the
p.itidnage of the benefice, and the Rev-Jos. Douton, m.a.



assizes have occasionally been held here ; and likewise j Is the present incumhcnt. There are two places of
the petty sessions f»ir the hundreds of Biggleswade, I worship for Baptists and one for VVesleyan Methodists;



Clifton and Wixaiiitrie ; and the town is included in the
36ihcircuitof to wns under t he County Cou it Act, passed
in 1846 for the recovery of debts to any amount not ex-
ceeding £20— this curt sits monthly in the town hall.
The corn and malt trade is extensive here, and the
barley niaiket was formerly considered one of the best
and mo^t abundantly supplied in England ; hut since



schools npon the British and National plans, and a
free school, moderately endowed by Edward Peake, Esq.
in 1555, whose bounty has since been augmented by a
descendant of the celebrated Sir John Cotton. A me-
chanics' institutehas lately been successtuilycstablished,
with classes for mutual improvenieiit — and lectures
are deliveied occasionally before the members at stated

employed are those of lace and stiaw plat, but neither exclusively by females. Fairs February 14th, Saturday
are so esteirsive as formerly. The land in the im- in Easter week, Whit-Monday, and Noven)bfr 8th (the
mediate vicinity of the town is flat, but exceedingly | latter [xipularly denominated 'wet-shod fair'); they

Sandy and VVurden hills, perennially overed with fine Biggleswade, with the dependent hamlets of Holme
firs and evergrt^ens, which, as viewed from the town, ami Stratfon, contained, by the returns for 1831,
have a pleasing effect. ' 3,226 inhabitants, and in 1841, 3,807.
