History

The constituency was created in 1950 as part of the first general review of seats by a permanent Boundary Commission for England which had been established in 1944. Before 1950 the area had been split between the constituencies of Aylesbury and Eton & Slough.

The constituency existed until the February 1974 general election, when major boundary changes split the area between the new constituencies of Beaconsfield and Chesham & Amersham.

Boundaries

The Urban District of Beaconsfield, the Rural District of Eton, and in the Rural District of Amersham the civil parishes of Amersham, Chalfont St Giles, Chalfont St Peter, Chenies, Chesham Bois, Coleshill, Penn, and Seer Green.

South Buckinghamshire was a county constituency and a division of the administrative county of Buckinghamshire. It comprised part of southern Buckinghamshire, bordering Aylesbury to the north, Wycombe to the west and Eton and Slough to the south.
