  About your Area

Courteenhall, Northamptonshire, England, is a hamlet 5 miles south of Northampton, in the district council area of South Northamptonshire where it is part of Blisworth and Roade ward. It is within the area of Northamptonshire County Council and, from the post 2005 General Election the new Parliamentary Constituency of South Northamptonshire. The MP is currently Brian Binley (Conservative) for the current constituency of Northampton South. The M1 motorway between junctions 14 and 15 passes to the northeast of the village, and junction 15 is just 1 mile distant. The main part of the village is on a no-through route.

Facilities The parish had a population of less than 100 in 2003, has no facilities other than a church and relies on the nearby village of Roade for shops and services. The post office in Courteenhall, opened in 1883, closed in February 1996. The church is in the Three Parishes Group together with Collingtree and Milton Malsor.

History The church of St Peter and St Paul dates from the 12th century (see the external link to 'The Three Parishes' for more details). The former Rectory is next to the south side of the church. In 1851 a Church Attendance Census revealed that in Courteenhall, one of the three villages in the 'Three Parishes' church grouping (see links), out of a total population of 127, 100 people attended Courteenhall Church on census day, held in England on years ending in the digit '1'. Of course, particular 'circumstances' prevailed in the Victorian estate villages affecting individual behaviour.

The Hall The village has grown up on the estate of the house or hall known simply as Courteenhall, which was purchased from Richard Ouseley by Sir Samuel Jones in 1647. Sir Samuel's estates were inherited by his great nephew Samuel Wake, a younger son of Sir William Wake, 3rd Baronet of Piddington. Courteenhall (the hall) is still occupied by the Wake family. It is private property but may be viewed in the distance from Courteenhall village church.

Visitors If visiting the village, please note that it is at the end of a narrow cul-de-sac road and has very limited parking. It is better to park outside the village and use one of the many public footpaths for access.
