Brill is a small village at the top of the 600-foot (180 m) high Brill Hill in the Aylesbury Vale in northern Buckinghamshire, 12 miles (19 km) northeast of Oxford,[5] and 45 miles (72 km) north-west of London.[6] It was the only population centre in Bernwood Forest, a forest owned by English monarchs as a hunting ground.[6] Traditionally believed to have been the home of King Lud,[5] Brill Palace was a seat of the Mercian kings,[7] the home of Edward the Confessor,[8] and an occasional residence of the monarchs of England until at least the reign of Henry III (1216–72).[7] Although a centre for manufacture of pottery and bricks,[7] Brill was a long way from major roads or rivers, and separated by hills from Oxford. It remained small and isolated.[6] In the 1861 census it had a population of 1,300.[9]

Richard Plantagenet Campbell Temple-Nugent-Brydges-Chandos-Grenville, the only son of Richard Plantagenet Temple-Nugent-Brydges-Chandos-Grenville, 2nd Duke of Buckingham and Chandos, was born on 10 September 1823.[6] By the mid-19th century the family was in financial difficulty.[10][note 2] The family's estates and their London home at Buckingham House were sold and the family seat of Stowe House seized by bailiffs as security and its contents sold.[10] Over 40,000 acres (16,200 ha) of the family's 55,000-acre (22,300 ha) estates were sold to meet debts.[10]
