Records Volumes

Banbury Historical Society Volumes

The society has published 35 volumes since 1957, ranging from Banbury’s magnificently detailed parish registers to Victorian diaries, and including parish records from Bodicote, Wigginton, South Newington and Kings Sutton along the way. 

 The society is always interested in new ideas for volumes in the series:  any local historians who have researched local records or archives of any kind are very welcome to suggest these for publication.

 Recent volumes can be bought from the Museum shop; earlier volumes still in print can be ordered from Margaret Little.
