BEACONSFIELD is a town remarkable for its salubrity, situate on an eminence in the parish of its name. It is in the hundred of Burnham, distant 23 miles W. of London, 31 from Oxford, 10 from Windsor, 7 from Slough, and 3 from the Wooburn Green Station, on the Wycombe branch of the Great Western Railway. The town consists of four streets, which meet at the centre of a spacious Market place. The principal street forms part of the road from Uxbridge to High Wycombe, and is more than half a mile in length. Its name is derived from the beacon fires, which were formerly lighted on the hill on which it is seated. The church is an ancient structure of flint and square stones, comprising nave, chancel, side aisles, and western tower, surmounted by a spire. It belonged to an ancient monastery of Augustine monks, founded at Burnham, in 1165, by Richard, Earl of Cornwall, the revenues of which were valued at the Dissolution at 91 5s. 11d.; the edifice contains the remains of the great statesman Edmund Burke, who resided and died it the Gregories; there is a plain tablet to his memory. In the churchyard, beneath an old walnut-tree, is the tomb, surmounted by an obelisk, of the poet Waller, who died in 1687. The church contains a brass, dated 1627, to M. and Dorothy Waller, and a canopied altar-tomb to one of the Bulstrode family. The living is a rectory in the presentation of Magdalen College, Oxford; tithes commuted at 867 15s. 4d; Rev John Gould, B.D., rector. The Wesleyans and Independents have chapels here, and there is a Free School for boys and girls. The charities amount to upwards of 120 per annum. Fairs are held on the 13th February and Holy Thursday. The principal mansions in the neighbourhood are Wilton Park, a splendidly wooded aai noble estate, the demesne and residence of John Du Pre, Esq.; Hall Barn Park, the property of John Hargreaves, Esq., lord of the manor; and Little Hall Barn, the residence of the Misses Sheppard. The Rectory House is an object of interest, as having formerly belonged to Burnham Abbey, and been occupied as a nunnery; it is supposed by antiquarians to be coeval with the Abbey. The parish contains an area of 4541 acres; the soil is a fine gravelly loam; a considerable quantity of the land is under pasturage and beech-wood. The population in 1861 was 1684.
Seer Green is a secluded hamlet and chapelry of Beaconsfield, from which it is 2 miles distant, and 2 from Chalfont St. Giles; it is in the hundred of Burnham, parish of Farnham Royal, and union of Amersham. The Chapel-of Ease is a small modern building; the Rev. Henry Herbert, M.A., incumbent. Here is a parochial school and a chapel for Baptists.
