Oxford History: Mayors & Lord Mayors


Mayors of Oxford


The Municipal Corporations Act came into force on 1 January 1836.

A new council was formed that day and a new Mayor elected to complete the council year,
which henceforth from 1836 to 1948) began in November.

Since 1949, elections have been held in May and Mayors have been elected immediately afterwards.

A woman was elected Mayor of Oxford for the 1st time in 1933.
