History 

Bedfordshire History

Bedfordshire/

The Angle invaders were naturally attracted to Bedfordshire by its abundant water supply and suitability for agriculture, but the remains of their settlements are few and scattered. Bedfordshire suffered severely in the civil war of King Stephen's reign. The county was thrown into the First Barons' War when Bedford Castle, seized from the Beauchamps by Falkes de Breauté one of the royal partisans, and was the scene of three sieges before being demolished on the king's order in 1224. 

Owing to its favorable agricultural conditions, up until at least the late nineteenth century Bedfordshire was predominantly an agricultural rather than a manufacturing county. From the 13th to the 15th century sheep farming flourished, Bedfordshire wool being in demand and plentiful. The lace industry is associated with Catherine of Aragon, who when trade was dull, burnt her lace and ordered new to be made. The Flemings, expelled by Alva's persecutions (1569), brought the manufacture of Flemish lace to Cranfield, it then spread to surrounding districts.
