High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire

Charles Savage, of Hitchendon; 31 December 1741

The High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, in common with other counties, was originally the King's representative on taxation upholding the law in Saxon times. The word Sheriff evolved from 'shire-reeve'.

The title of High Sheriff is therefore much older than the other Crown appointment, the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, which came about in 1535.

Unlike the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, which is generally held from appointment until the holder's death or incapacity, the title of High Sheriff is appointed / reappointed annually. The High Sheriff is assisted by an Under-Sheriff of Buckinghamshire.

There's no indication of any relationship link between this family and the family of Sir Thomas Savage, although it appears they attended the same church; St. Olave Hart Street.
