EARLY HIGH SHERIFFS OF BUCKINGHAMSHIRE

The first Sheriff of Buckinghamshire was Godric, appointed around 1042 and killed leading his levies at the Battle of Hastings.

During the reign of Henry I some Shires were paired under a joint High Sheriff; Buckinghamshire was intermittently paired with Berkshire and Bedfordshire until this practice was discontinued in 1575.
