Whittlebury is a village situated in the south of the county of Northamptonshire, close to the Buckinghamshire border. It offers easy access to the town of Towcester, from which it lies due south. Throughout the Middle Ages, Whittlebury was a chapelry dependent upon the royal manor of Greens Norton, about four miles to the north. The parish lies in a detached part of Greens Norton and was probably carved out of an enlarged Greens Norton in the early 10th century following Edward the Elder's defeat of the Danes. The 'burh' element of Whittlebury, compounded with the personal name Witela, suggests the presence of a hill fort held by a Saxon nobleman. Historically it was part of Whittlewood Forest, a former medieval hunting forest in the south of the county of Northamptonshire in England that is now managed by the Forestry Commission and is notable for its bluebells in mid-Spring. It was also part of The Honour of Grafton, a collection of manors in the south east of Northamptonshire. The Honour is historic, dating back at least as far as 1542 when a bill for its management was before parliament. In 1673 the Honour was granted to Catherine of Braganza, the queen of Charles II of England.
