Burnham in 1836
Burnham, between Colnbrook and Maidenhead, a little to the right of the high western road, has been already noticed as having been once a market town. It had a monastery of Augustine nuns. The manor of Chippenham in this parish was one of the demesnes of the crown, and the Mercian kings are said to have had a palace there. There was a palace certainly in the 13th century, for Henry III occasionally resided at it. Population in 1831, 2,137.
