Until the nineteenth century the prosperity of Uxbridge depended on its market. It was the major corn market for west Middlesex and south Buckinghamshire and was a very important flour milling centre, with about 13 mills along the Colne and Frays rivers. In 1555 five men, not from Uxbridge, were burned at the stake on Lynch Green for their Protestant beliefs. In 1575 the people of Uxbridge were allowed their own burial ground on land at the bottom of the Lynch (Windsor Street) given by the Earl of Derby, then Lord of the Manor.
