"You will search in vain on maps for the name 'Banburyshire'.
It is, however, a real area of countryside, whose villages have long looked to Banbury as their market town centre.
Most of Banburyshire falls within North Oxfordshire but the regional identity extends to parts of neighbouring Warwickshire and Northamptonshire."

This site is designed to let you share your family history interests with others .... Here are some of the ways you can share by contributing to this site:
- Your family history ~ online - not as difficult as it may seem! You can start with one photo or notes on just one family.
- Surnames List ~ with dates and villages of interest in the area and additional Notes & Queries to add more detail to the surnames you are researching
- Memorials ~ church yard memorials, obituaries, death notices etc
- War Memorials and individual remembrances (not restricted to Banburyshire)
- Family Bibles ~ any family bible - it does not have to be related to Banburyshire
- Memories & Reminiscences ~ If you don't write your memories down, who will?! These memories do not have to be specifically related to the Banbury area.
- Towns and Villages ~ photographs and specific village interests
- Books and Book Reviews ~ some local books as well as family history background reading
- Old Photographs ~ family, people, clothes, celebrations etc.
- Traditional Recipes and Food to Remember ~ speaks for itself!
