Prior to 2010, the constituency existed from 1832–1918, and from 1950-1974. It elected two Members of Parliament (MP) by the bloc vote system of election from 1832, until the representation was reduced in 1885 to one member elected by the first past the post system. It was abolished in 1918 to form the new constituency of Daventry, recreated in 1950 after the abolition of Daventry and in 1974 was re-altered to Daventry again.
The electoral wards used in the creation of this new seat are as follows. Alternative names were considered for this seat, but despite the clumsy juxtaposition of compass point names, the Commission chose to keep the title which it shares with the local district of the same name.
