Was Stratford in Northamptonshire before boundary changes?

Thanks

Can you clarify which Stratford you are talking about?

Stony Stratford was always just over the border in Bucks.  Old Stratford across the Gt Ouse from Stony Stratford was in Northamptonshire.  Stratford upon Avon was never anywhere near Northants

Hi,

The reason for asking is that I have an ancestor who has stated on one census, Stratford on Avon as place of birth and on the next, Stratford, Northants as place of birth. To my knowledge Stratford on avon has always been warwickshire, however I just thought I had better check!

Thanks
