Quainton

Quainton is a village and civil parish in Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England, 7mi north west of Aylesbury. The population is 1290, of whom 1000 are adults. The village has two churches, a school and one public house. The location means that while many commute to London, others are employed in neighbouring towns and villages.Its name is Old English and means Queen's Estate . It is not known to which queen this refers, but possibly the Queen was Edith, the wife of Edward the Confessor. Known as "Fair Edith" she held manors in this part of Buckinghamshire, including a hunting lodge at Mentmore. Edward the Confessor had a palace at nearby Brill.The former suffix Malet refers to the Malet family who were lords of the manor from 1066 until about 1348. At least one member went on the crusades, and had associations with the Hospitallers, the organization credited with rebuilding Quainton church circa 1340. The Hospitallers erected the cross on the village green, the base and shaft of which still remain.
