The Regiment was originally formed to make up the North West Regiment of Oxfordshire Yeomanry Cavelry in 1798 and 1818.

They adopted the badge in 1835 as a result of a visit in 1835 by Queen Adelaide, the wife of William the 4th who visit Oxford earlier in the year.

The Regiment carried duties such as the Guard of Honour to her, and as a thank you she granted them the title "Queen's Own Royal Oxford Yeomanry Cavalry" . The title however change again in later years as the 'Royal' title was dropped to "Queen's Own Oxfordshire Hussar's" in 1881.
