Market regulation to stop animals wandering through Banbury

In 1869 Joseph Osborn was mayor of Banbury. He had been elected in November of the previous year. Like many other holders of that office Joseph had a business background.

Significantly as mayor he was also clerk responsible for the town’s arrangements for the marketing of livestock.
