ORIGIN OF THE NAME

The name Bury is etymologically connected with borough , which has cognates in other Germanic languages such as the German "burg" meaning "fortress, castle"; Old Norse "borg" meaning "wall, castle"; and Gothic "baurgs" meaning "city". They all derive from Proto-Germanic *burgs meaning "fortress". This in turn derives from the Proto-Indo-European root *bhrgh meaning "fortified elevation", with cognates including Welsh bera ("stack") and Sanskrit
Sanskrit
bhrant- ("high, elevated building"). There is thus no justification for the folk etymology stating that the Cathedral Town was so called because St Edmund was buried there.

The second section of the name refers to Edmund King of the East Angles , who was killed by the Vikings in the year 869. He became venerated as a saint and a martyr, and his shrine made Bury St Edmunds an important place of pilgrimage.

The formal name of both the borough and the diocese is "St Edmundsbury". Local residents often refer to Bury St Edmunds
Bury St Edmunds
simply as "Bury".

HISTORY

Bury St Edmunds
Bury St Edmunds
(BEODERICSWORTH, BEDRICHESWORTH, ST EDMUND\'S BURY), supposed by some to have been the Villa Faustina of the Romans , was one of the royal towns of the Saxons
Saxons
. Sigebert , king of the East Angles , founded a monastery here about 633, which in 903 became the burial place of King Edmund , who was slain by the Danes in 869, and owed most of its early celebrity to the reputed miracles performed at the shrine of the martyr king. The town grew around Bury St Edmunds Abbey
Abbey
, a site of pilgrimage . By 925 the fame of St Edmund had spread far and wide, and the name of the town was changed to ST EDMUND\'S BURY.

In 942 or 945 King Edmund had granted to the abbot and convent jurisdiction over the whole town, free from all secular services, and Canute in 1020 freed it from episcopal control. Edward the Confessor made the abbot lord of the franchise. Sweyn , in 1020, having destroyed the older monastery and ejected the secular priests, built a Benedictine
Benedictine
abbey on St Edmund's Bury. Count Alan Rufus is said to have been interred at Bury St Edmunds Abbey in 1093. In the 12th and 13th centuries the head of the de Hastings family, who held the Lordship of the Manor of Ashill in Norfolk, was hereditary Steward of this abbey.

On 18 March 1190, two days after the more well-known massacre of Jews at Clifford Tower in York
York
, the people of Bury St Edmunds
Bury St Edmunds
massacred 57 Jews. Later that year, Abbot
Abbot
Samson successfully petitioned King Richard I for permission to evict the town's remaining Jewish inhabitants "on the grounds that everything in the town... belonged by right to St Edmund: therefore, either the Jews should be St Edmund’s men or they should be banished from the town." This expulsion predates the Edict of Expulsion by 100 years. In 1198, a fire burned the shrine of St Edmund, leading to the inspection of his corpse by Abbot
Abbot
Samson and the translation of St Edmund's body to a new location in the abbey .

The town is associated with Magna Carta
Magna Carta
. In 1214 the barons of England
England
are believed to have met in the Abbey
Abbey
Church and sworn to force King John to accept the Charter of Liberties , the document which influenced the creation of the Magna Carta, a copy of which was displayed in the town's cathedral during the 2014 celebrations. By various grants from the abbots, the town gradually attained the rank of a borough .

Henry III in 1235 granted to the abbot two annual fairs, one in December (which still survives) and the other the great St Matthew 's fair, which was abolished by the Fairs Act of 1871 . In 1327, the Great Riot occurred, in which the local populace led an armed revolt against the Abbey. The burghers were angry at the overwhelming power, wealth and corruption of the monastery, which ran almost every aspect of local life with a view to enriching itself. The riot destroyed the main gate and a new, fortified gate was built in its stead. However, in 1381 during the Great Uprising, the Abbey
Abbey
was sacked and looted again. This time, the Prior was executed; his severed head was placed on a pike in the Great Market. On 11 April 1608 a great fire broke out in Eastgate Street, which resulted in 160 dwellings and 400 outhouses being destroyed. Thomas Warren 's map of Bury St Edmunds, 1776

The town developed into a flourishing cloth-making town, with a large woollen trade, by the 14th century. In 1405 Henry IV granted another fair.

Elizabeth I
Elizabeth I
in 1562 confirmed the charters which former kings had granted to the abbots. The reversion of the fairs and two markets on Wednesday and Saturday were granted by James I in fee farm to the corporation. James I in 1606 granted a charter of incorporation with an annual fair in Easter week and a market. James granted further charters in 1608 and 1614, as did Charles II in 1668 and 1684.

Parliaments were held in the borough in 1272, 1296 and 1446, but the borough was not represented until 1608, when James I conferred on it the privilege of sending two members. The Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 reduced the representation to one.

The borough of Bury St Edmunds
Bury St Edmunds
and the surrounding area, like much of East Anglia
East Anglia
, being part of the Eastern Association , supported Puritan

sentiment during the first half of the 17th century. By 1640, several families had departed for the Massachusetts Bay Colony

as part of the wave of emigration that occurred during the Great Migration . Bury's ancient grammar school also educated such notables as the puritan theologian Richard Sibbes , master of St Catherine's Hall in Cambridge
Cambridge
, antiquary and politician Simonds D\'Ewes , and John Winthrop, Jr. , who became governor of Connecticut.

The town was the setting for witch trials between 1599 and 1694. View of gate, Bury St Edmunds

MODERN HISTORY

A permanent military presence was established in the town with the completion of Gibraltar Barracks in 1878.

During the Second World War

, the USAAF used RAF Station Rougham airfield outside the town.

On 3 March 1974 a Turkish Airlines

DC10 jet Flight 981 crashed near Paris killing all 346 people on board. Among the victims were 17 members of Bury St Edmunds

Rugby Football Club , returning from France.

The town council was formed in 2003. The election on 3 May 2007 was won by the "Abolish Bury Town Council" party. The party lost its majority following a by-election in June 2007 and, to date, the Town Council is still in existence. In March 2008 a further by-election put Conservatives in control but in the council election of May 2011 the lack of Conservative and other parties' candidates let in a Labour majority before the election was even held. By 2013 a number of by-elections put Conservatives in control again but in the 2015 election Conservatives won 14 of the 17 vacancies.

Gardens stands Britain's first internally illuminated street sign, the Pillar of Salt which was built in 1935. The sign is at the terminus of the A1101 , Great Britain's lowest road.

There is a network of tunnels which are evidence of chalk -workings, though there is no evidence of extensive tunnels under the town centre. Some buildings have inter-communicating cellars. Due to their unsafe nature the chalk-workings are not open to the public, although viewing has been granted to individuals. Some have caused subsidence within living memory, for instance at Jacqueline Close.

The opening for the tower took place in July 2005, and included a brass band concert and fireworks. Parts of the cathedral remain uncompleted, including the cloisters and some areas remain inaccessible to the public due to building work.

The refinery processes beet from 1,300 growers. 660 lorry-loads of beet can be accepted each day when beet is being harvested.
