Windsor Castle Bookham
It is difficult to conjecture when the parish of Little Bookham was formed. The first documentary evidence can be found after the conversion of England to Christianity in the 7th century. The Venerable Bede states that Erconwald, who became Bishop of London in 674, founded the Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter of Chertsey in 666, and Frithuwald, who was sub-king or regent of Surrey, joined in the grant endowing the abbey with certain lands.
Frithuwald, however, seems to have been the subject at that time of Ecgberht, King of Kent, and the charter is stated to have been confirmed by Wulfhere, King of Mercia, to whom the overlordship of Surrey must have been passed before his death in 675. It has been stated that the monastery was first built under King Egbert.
According to a charter C.675, the original of which is lost but which exists in a later form, there was granted to the Abbey twenty dwellings at Bocham cum Effingham. This was confirmed by four Saxon kings; Offa, "King of the Mercians and of the nations roundabout" in 787; Athelstan who was "King and ruler of the whole island of Britain" in 933 confirmed the privileges to the monastery; King Edgar, "Emperor of all Britain" in 967 confirmed "twelve mansiones" in Bocham, and King Edward the Confessor, "King of the English" in 1062 confirmed twenty mansae at Bocham cum Effingham, Driteham and Pechingeorde. Driteham and Pechingeorde are both referred to in the Domesday Book and appear to have been absorbed into the manors of Effingham and Effingham East Court.
Little Bookham lay within the Anglo-Saxon administrative district of Effingham half hundred.
Little Bookham appears in as Bocheham. It was held by Halsard from William de Braiose. Its Domesday Assets were: 2 hides; 2 ploughs, 4 acres (16, 000 m2) of meadow, herbage and pannage worth 11 hogs. It rendered (in total): £3.
Parts of the present parish of Effingham, however, lying to the east of Effingham Common Road at one time belonged to the parish of Little Bookham. The charters of Frithwald, Offa, Edgar and Edward the Confessor are all believed to be substantially fabricated, but probably embodied authentic material or recorded an earlier genuine transaction. These charters were probably written at a later date than stated in order to confirm a position which was thought to have existed at that earlier date. The Charter of Athelstan, however, is believed to be complete fabrication.blogging without a niche is blogging out bloggingpro theme difference between blogging and microblogging bloggings by boz blogging to make money online covid blog ideas is blogging out of date blogging during a divorce blogging without investment before blogging bloggingpro wordpress theme getting into blogging blogging from paradise blogging with notion blogging books blogging in education blogging best practices blogging coaching near me bloggingpro reviews blogging sign up can you make more money blogging or vlogging blogging out meaning blogging groups near me blogging course near me building over blogging blogging at medium blogging by numbers blogging apps that pay blogging apps blogging at fl250 blogging to win course review blogging of cars blogging blast off blogging without domain blogging to relieve stress blogging through squarespace blogging from your phone blogging without showing your face blogging over blogging beyond the classroom blogging from ipad blogging translate into bengali blogging platforms like medium blogging at 70 blogging step by step blogging by maya difference between blogging and affiliate marketing set up blogging site blogging classes near me blogging is dying out blogging as a business travel blogging during covid blogging from home blogging like site blogging from home jobs turning blogging into a business write off blogging expenses blogging by definition blogging in 2022 difference between blogging and content writing blogging startup difference between blogging and social media blogging sites like tumblr blogging from the heart blogging of art should i blog or vlog moving beyond blogging difference between blogging and journalism tips before blogging blogging with medium blogging with google difference between blogging and website blogging in google blogging through instagram blogging of computer blogging under your own name translate blogging into kannada blogging from iphone blogging from scratch blogging like apps blogging through pinterest blogging at college blogging on google can bloggers make good money blogging of a product blogging up meaning difference between blogging and podcasting beyond blogging blogging sites like medium blogging business ideas blogging boys blogging of future blogging in the elementary classroom blogging like blogging to the bank blogging events near me secret behind blogging opposite of blogging blogging of e commerce blogging to win.com blogging business blogging takes off traduzione blogging at the limit blogging to earn money difference between blogging and vlogging blogging by sophia lee blogging without wordpress is vlogging better than blogging guest blogging off page blogging platform before how to make money while blogging blogging quizlet blogging by email blogging with wordpress blogging of photography blogging without website blogging at work money off blogging blogging set up laptop for blogging under 40000 blogging like website blogging to promote your business blogging without writing fall into blogging blogging over wine psychology behind blogging blogging as a side hustle blogging at 40 blogging through the fourth dimension in your blog or on your blog blogging during weight loss over blogging definition considerations before blogging blogging through google covid-19 blog topics blogging pro jobs blogging over thyme pro blogging tips pro blogging tips blogspot makeup blogging blogging anonymously blogging with wix blogging of music blogging over 40 blogging through wordpress blogging through facebook blogging comes under which category know before blogging blogging comes under which industry blogging during covid 19 blogging by google blogging past participle blogging at 60 blogging over 50 blogging as a career blogging with students blogging behind the scenes advantages of blogging over social media what do you mean by blog blogging through mobile blogging near philadelphia turn blogging into career blogging vs blog blogging in past tense blogging with shopify pro blogging idea blogging can i earn from blogging blogging workshops near me blogging about mental health sign up blogging account blogging in wordpress earning thru blogging in blog or on blog blogging during war blogging and making money blogging wrap up meaning behind blogging
