Archaeological evidence of settlement in the Northampton area dates back to the Bronze Age, Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods. Throughout the Middle Ages, Northampton rose to great significance with the establishment of Northampton Castle, which was an occasional royal residence and regularly hosted the Parliament of England. Medieval Northampton had lots of fine churches, monasteries and the University of Northampton, which were all within the town walls. Northampton was granted its first town charter by King Richard I in 1189 and its first mayor was appointed by King John in 1215. The town is also the site of two medieval battles; the Battle of Northampton in 1264 and a second battle in 1460.
Northamptons royal connection was fixed during the Civil war with the town supporting Parliament and thus the Roundheadsat this time, which culminated in King Charles II ordering the destruction of the town walls and most of the castle. The town also suffered the Great Fire of Northampton in 1675 which destroyed most of the town. It was soon rebuilt and grew rapidly with the industrial development of the 18th century. Northampton continued to grow following the creation of the Grand Union Canal and the arrival of the railways in the 19th century, becoming an industrial centre for footwear and leather manufacture.
Nanette Newman, the actress and author was born in Northampton.
