Bicester has a history going back to Saxon times. The name Bicester, which has been in use since the mid 17th century, comes from earlier forms including Berncestre, Biciter and Bissiter. The ruins of the Roman settlement of Alchester are 2 miles southwest of Bicester and remains of an Augustinian priory founded in 1180 survive in the town centre.
The first documentary reference is the Domesday Book of 1086 which records Bicester as Berencestra, its two manors of Bicester and Wretchwick being held by Robert D'Oyly who built Oxford Castle. The town became established as twin settlements on opposite banks of the River Bure, a tributary of the Ray, Cherwell and the River Thames.
The town has an enduring connection with the military. Ward Lock & Co's Guide to Oxford and District suggests that Alchester was a kind of Roman Aldershot. During the Civil War, Bicester was used as the headquarters of parliamentary forces. Following the outbreak of the French Wars from 1793, John Coker, the manorial lord of Bicester Kings End, formed an Association for the Protection of Property against Levellers and Jacobins as an anti-Painite loyalist band providing local militia and volunteer drafts for the army. When Oxford University formed a regiment in 1798, John Coker was elected Colonel.
