Wimbledon has been inhabited since at least the Iron Age when the hill fort on Wimbledon Common, the second largest in London, is thought to have been constructed. The original centre of Wimbledon was at the top of the hill close to the common, which is the area now known as the village.
The village is referred to as Wimbedounyng in a charter signed by King Edgar the Peaceful in 967. The name Wimbledon means Wynnmans hill, with the final element of the name being the Old English dun for hill.
At the time the Domesday Book was compiled, Wimbledon was part of the manor of Mortlake, and so was not recorded. The ownership of the manor of Wimbledon changed hands many times during its history. The manor was held by the church until 1398 when the Archbishop of Canterbury fell out of favour with Richard II and was exiled. The manor was confiscated and became crown property.
The manor remained crown property until the reign of Henry VIII when it was granted briefly to Thomas Cromwell, Earl of Essex, until Cromwell was executed in 1540 and the land was again confiscated. The manor was next held by Henry VIIIs last wife and widow Catherine Parr until her death in 1548 when it again reverted to the monarch.
In the 1550s, Henrys daughter, Mary I, granted the manor to Cardinal Reginald Pole who held it until his death in 1558 when it once again become royal property. Marys sister, Elizabeth I held the property until 1574 when she gave the manor house to Christopher Hatton who sold it in the same year to Sir Thomas Cecil, Earl of Exeter. The lands of the manor were given to the Cecil family in 1588 and a new manor house, Wimbledon Palace, was constructed and gardens laid out in the formal Elizabethan style.
