During the reign of Edward the Confessor, Ruislip and Ickenham belonged to a Saxon named Wlward Wit, a friend of the king who owned land in many counties. Ruislip parish included what is now the modern Ruislip, Northwood, Eastcote, Ruislip Manor and South Ruislip. Wit lost a lot of his land during the Norman conquest of England; Arnulf de Hesdin took control of Ruislip and his ownership is recorded within the Domesday Book.
Ruislip appears in the Domesday Book as Rislepe, thought to mean leaping place on the river where rushes grow, in reference to the River Pinn.
The parish church, St Martins, has been dated to the middle of the 13th century. An earlier church is thought to have been built during the Norman period, as a stone was found within the grounds with markings from that time. The name St. Martin is believed to have been given to the church by the monks of the Bec Abbey, after Martin of Tours who was a saint in Normandy. Before 1245, references to the church only name it as Ruislip church.
The present church was believed to have been built upon the insistence of the Proctor-General, William de Guineville, under the ownership of Bec Abbey, to serve the growing population. He used the priory at Manor Farm as his main residence. The first recorded vicar was William de Berminton in 1327. The building itself has been remodelled in parts over the years and was restored in 1870. It received Grade B listed status as an Anglican church in 1950, corresponding as Grade II.
Under the ownership of the Abbey, timber from the woods around Ruislip was used in the construction of the Tower of London in 1339, Windsor Castle in 1344, the Palace of Westminster in 1346 and the manor of the Black Prince in Kennington. The woods were coppiced on rotation throughout the years with the timber sold to local tanneries. By the time Kings College took ownership of the manor, the woods were let for sport, with pheasants kept for shooting.
