"Whereas the Borough and Town of Banbury hath
been anciently incorporated, and hath had divers
Privileges granted to it by the Kings and Queens of
this Realm, as by divers Charters to them granted
doth appear; and whereas the Government there
hath a long Time been by a Mayor, Aldermen, Burgesses, and Justices of Peace in the said Town, the
Mayor for the Time being having been always the
Chief Officer, and for the Time of his being Mayor
having been Justice of Peace and of the Quorum,
within the said Town and Borough and Liberties
thereof; and, by their Charter and ancient Custom,
the Mayor hath been always from Time to Time
chosen out of the Aldermen, upon the First Monday
in September Yearly, to take his Place and execute
the Office of Mayor within the said Borough and
Town of Banbury and Liberties thereof, upon and
from the 29th Day of the said September, for One

Monday in September, 1644, legally chosen to be

the Charter and ancient Custom of the said Borough
and Town; but, before and upon the First Monday
in September, 1645, when another Alderman should
have been chosen Mayor in his room for this present
Year, the Town and Borough of Banbury and Castle
there were so infested with bloody and cruel Enemies, who burned and pulled down a great Part of
the said Town, that the Mayor and most of the
Aldermen and Burgesses, by reason of their Cruelty,
were constrained to fly out of the said Town and
Borough, to save their Lives, before the said First
Monday in September, 1645, and could not with
Safety return thither again, till of late that the
Town and Castle there were reduced to the Obedience of the Parliament, so as no Choice hath or could
be made, according to the Charter and ancient
Custom of the said Borough, of another Mayor,
to succeed the said Aholiab West for this present
"It is therefore Ordered and Ordained, by the
Lords and Commons in this present Parliament assembled, That the said Aholiab West shall be and
continue Mayor, and execute the Office and Authority of Mayor, within the said Town and Borough
of Banbury, untill the 29th Day of September next;
his being not chosen upon the First Monday of
September last, according to the Charter and ancient Custom, or any other Act or Thing in their
Charter, Customs, or otherwise, to the contrary notwithstanding."
