In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Nash like this:
the signs shows local lace makers and the village pump with the church in the back ground
NASH, a hamlet in Whaddon parish, Bucks; 5½ miles E of Buckingham. Acres, 1, 430. Real property, £1, 813, Pop., 462. Houses, 103. The property is divided chiefly among five. The hamlet forms chief part of the chapelry of Thornton-cum-Nash; and contains the church of thatchapelry, a Baptist chapel, and a national school. Nash Common is a meet for the Whaddon Chase hounds.
Nash is a village and also a civil parish within Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England. It is in the north of the county, near Milton Keynes and four miles east of Buckingham.
The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'ash tree'. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the village was recorded as Esse. The name went from 'Ash' to 'Nash' by local colloquialism.
There are no working shops or pubs in the village.
If anybody would like to expand to this series please do. I would just ask that you let SmokeyPugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
