Northamptonshire , archaically known as the County of Northampton, is a county in the East Midlands of England. In 2015 it had a population of 723,000 During the English Civil War, Northamptonshire strongly supported the Parliamentarian cause, and the Royalist forces suffered a crushing defeat at the Battle of Naseby in 1645 in the north of the county.
King Charles I was imprisoned at Holdenby House in 1647.  In 1823 Northamptonshire was said to "[enjoy] a very pure and wholesome air" because of its dryness and distance from the sea. Its livestock were celebrated: Horned cattle, and other animals, are fed to extraordinary sizes: and many horses of the large black breed are reared. " Nine years later, the county was described as "a county enjoying the reputation of being one of the healthiest and pleasantest parts of England" although the towns were "of small importance with the exceptions of Peterborough and Northampton.
In summer, the county hosted a great number of wealthy families... Country seats and villas are to be seen at every step." Northamptonshire is still referred to as the county of "spires and squires because of the numbers of stately homes and ancient churches.  In the 18th and 19th centuries, parts of Northamptonshire and the surrounding area became industrialised. The local specialisation was shoemaking and the leather industry and by the end of the 19th century it was almost definitively the boot and shoe making capital of the world.
 In the north of the county a large ironstone quarrying industry developed from 1850.  Much of Northamptonshire nevertheless remains largely rural.
