Market Bosworth is a small market town and civil parish in Leicestershire, England. At the time of the 2001 Census, the parish, including the hamlet of Far Coton, had a total population of 1,906.Until 1974 it contained the offices of Market Bosworth Rural District, which was merged in that year with the Hinckley Rural District to form the district of Hinckley and Bosworth.HistoryBuilding work at the old Cattle Market and other sites has revealed evidence of settlement on the hill since the Bronze Age. Remains of a Roman villa have been found on the east side of Barton Road. Bosworth as an Anglo-Saxon village dates from the 8th century.Before the Norman Conquest of 1066, there were two manors at Bosworth one belonging to an Anglo-Saxon knight named Fernot, and some sokemen. Following the Norman conquest, as recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, both the Anglo-Saxon manors and the village were part of the lands awarded by William the Conqueror to the Count of Meulan from Normandy, Robert de Beaumont, 1st Earl of Leicester. Subsequently the village passed by marriage dowry to the English branch of the French House of Harcourt.
