In the Journal of the House of Lords around July 4, 1799, there is one bill  linked to Buckingham and passed to committee :

'An Act for dividing, alloting, and enclosing the Common Fields, Common Meadows, and Waste Grounds within the Manor and Hamlet of Singleborough, in the Parish of Great Harwood,  in the County of Buckingham'

Toning on folds.

 

Singleborough, a considerable hamlet about a mile from the village, has been inclosed by an act of parliament, passed in 1799, when an allotment of land was given to the rector, in lieu of the small tithes, and for the great tithes to which he was said to be entitled, as lessee under New-College. Several persons are mentioned in the act as claimants of the manor of Singleborough.
