Hughenden has become very well-known because Benjamin Disraeli, Earl of Beaconsfield, lived at Hughenden Manor from 1847 until his death in 1881. Queen Victoria sent primroses, his favourite flower, to his funeral and these were placed on his grave in Hughenden churchyard, which is visited annually by the Primrose League.
