Marlow grew up on the banks of the river, and probably owed its importance to its position on the high road between Reading and High Wycombe, the connexion between which towns is secured by the bridge, formerly of timber, for the repair of which an indulgence was granted as early as 1294. The erection of the bridge and the convenience of Marlow as a place of call probably led to the grant of a market, and this became a centre for the surrounding country. 23) Adjacent to it is the Crown Hotel, which with the market-house and manor passed in 1735 to the Claytons. 24) They also acquired at that date the 'Bear' and a malt-house, formerly the 'Black Boy.' (fn. The house stands in well-wooded grounds on a height commanding a wide view towards the river. To the north-west of the town is the small hamlet of Bovingdon Green and beyond it stretches Marlow Common. 45) A mile beyond Seymour Court a lane leads west off the high road to Widmere Farm House, belonging to Sir William Clayton and occupied by Messrs. The situation is a remarkably fine one, with beautiful views of the quiet country-side with its woods and valleys.
The proximity of the river was also a great asset to mediaeval Marlow, which placed its church on the bank near the bridge; but the town did not develop along these low-lying grounds, but extended northwards and upwards on the more healthy parts. 25) The latter building, of 16th-century or probably older date, was in Church Passage and was pulled down in 1870 when the passage was reduced to an alley. 26) In Spittal Street are a Wesleyan chapel, rebuilt in 1901, and the Greyhound Hotel. The old house near the Henley road was purchased in 1863 by Frank Smedley, the author of , who died here the following year. 35) In the north of the town is the poorer, more thickly-populated quarter served by Holy Trinity Church. Across the parish runs Marlow Bottom, one of the narrow, deep valleys so common in this county, which leads about 2 miles north of Marlow to the old farm-house of Munday Dean. The old house was practically destroyed in the Civil War, and portions of the garden wall were all that was left of it at the end of the 18th century. 44) The tradition that this house was the birthplace of Lady Jane Seymour, queen of Henry VIII, seems to have no foundation in fact; the Seymours who lived here before that date appear to have been an entirely distinct family. Most of the farm-house is modern, but the chapel of the Hospitallers still exists.

The whole ecclesiastical parish of Great Marlow, to which Ackhampstead in Lewknor-up-Hill, Oxon., was added by Local Government Board Order in 1885, was divided for civil purposes into two parishes by a further Local Government Board Order (fn. One of these, comprising the area of the urban district, was known as Marlow (Urban) and the other consisted of the remainder of the old civil parish, including Bovingdon Green, Harleyford, Lane End, &c., called Great Marlow. 2) which came into operation at the same date part of the former civil parish of Great Marlow, now called Marlow Urban, was constituted an urban district by the name of Great Marlow. 22) Near to it are the school and school-house built from the design of the younger Pugin. 40) the property passed to Davenport Bromley, who never lived there. 41) About 2 miles west of the town on the river-bank is Harleyford House, the seat of Sir William Robert Clayton, bart.
