The Manor of Harborough is first mentioned in 11 when it was called "Haverberg".

It is likely that Harborough was formed out of the Royal Manor with the intention of making it a place for tradesmen and a market when a new highway between Oxendon and Kibworth was established to help link Northampton and Leicester.

Eventually this market lead to the modern name of Market Harborough.

The trades people of Harborough had large tofts or farm yards at the rear of their property where goods were made and stored.

In Harborough, the King decided to confront Parliamentary forces who were camped near Naseby but the Battle of Naseby proved a decisive victory for Parliament led by Oliver Cromwell.

Harborough Chapel became a temporary prison for the captured forces.
