The name Banbury derives from "Banna", a Saxon chieftain said to have built a stockade there in the 6th century (or Ban(n)a possibly a byname meaning 'felon', 'murderer'  ), and "burgh" meaning settlement.   The Saxon spelling was Banesbyrig.   The name appears as "Banesberie" in Domesday Book.   Another known spelling was 'Banesebury' in Medieval times.
