    5 Quickfire Egham Facts

    1. Life In Egham
      Traces of human habitation found in the area date back over 12,000 years towards the end of the Stone Age, when early roaming hunter gatherers first started to settle. Egham was occupied through both the Roman and Saxon eras and even survived the horrific interior decorating scandals of the 1970s and 80s (there were a lot of ‘avocado’ bath suits and some terrible wallpaper choices!).
    2. Girl Power
      Between 1897 and 1920 Egham had two separate suffrage societies. While the NUWSS promoted the idea of law-abiding, non-violent methods to secure the vote for women, the Women’s Social & Political Union were far more volatile and believed in securing the vote at all costs. In 1903 there came a number of attacks and in 1913, a house in Englefield Green was set on fire in the name of the cause.
    3. The Professor
      Self-made man (and self-titled ‘scientist and inventor’), ‘Professor’ Thomas Holloway turned his patented ‘cure all’, “Holloway’s Pills and Ointments” into one of the world’s first global brands, largely thanks to his skill at advertising and ability to never let the something as trivial as the truth get in the way of a good sale. While he was slightly less forthcoming with genuine facts or medical research, he was a true philanthropist and used his millions to fund the Holloway Sanatorium at Virginia Water, Royal Holloway College in Egham, both of which did help advance medicine (certainly more than his pills ever did!).
    4. Saving Private Broome
      John and Eliza Broome ran the butchers in Egham’s High Street and had 8 sons at the turn of the 20th century. Large families were not uncommon and at the outbreak of the First World War all 8 brothers enlisted. What does make the Broome’s remarkable is that despite the incredibly high death rate, all 8 boys made it safely home.
    5. First Fleet
      Local lass Ruth Bowyer lived with her aunt in Egham and worked at the Bush Hotel in Staines. After being accused of stealing 5 spoons she was arrested and stood trial. On the 7th of October Ruth was sentenced to 7 years transportation to Australia and travelled with 46 other women as part of the ‘First Fleet’, 11 ships that took the first ever convicts to Australia. She died less than two years into her sentence.

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    Early Days

    The first residents to set up home in Egham arrived in the Stone Age, around 12,000 years ago. In the 1960s a number of Bronze Age artefacts were discovered in the Mixnam gravel pits including a bronze shield. Later the Romans moved in and the high street may still lay on the route of an original Roman road between London and Silchester, of course they weren’t popular with everyone and Egham is one of several locations suggested as the site of Queen Boudicca’s last ever battle.

    7th Century

    Over's Removals

    By 410AD the Saxons were the dominant people and the town most likely gets its name from a Saxon chief, Ecca (Ecca Ham = Ecca’s people). The 7th century saw the first written record of the town that was then known as Egeham. The Vikings certainly travelled through the area, most notably fleeing the Anglo-Saxons having been roundly defeated. In 1981 Mixnam pits gave up more treasure, a remarkably complete Viking sword.

    11th Century

    The town was also included in the Domesday Book in 1086 (again as Egeham), but arguably the greatest historical moment was due to the town’s proximity to Runnymede where King John was forced to sign the Magna Carta in 1215 which changed the course of British history and was the blueprint for the US Constitution and modern democracy throughout the world. Historians consider it likely that nobles or their troops would have been stationed at Egham for the event. By signing, King John also gave up his rights to vast areas of forest hunting grounds he had gobbled up during his reign and with the ending of the death penalty for hunting, the people of Egham could breathe a sigh of relief (and fill their bellies with venison!).

    18th Century

    The area was rife with highwaymen in the 1700s and there is at least one account of a highwaymen being apprehended in an inn in Egham (where he had left his horse during a robbery). He was tried and sentenced to hanging.

    19th Century

    1814 and 1817 the law came to visit the town again. Egham had grown a love of horseracing which was held on Runnymede Meadow (the same location that King John met his match). However, the Enclosures Act meant the fenced off course was breaking the law. This was easily fixed by wealthy landowners (so much for the Magna Carta!) and an award made allowing the track to be marked and separated from the rest of the meadow (meaning less available land for common folk to graze livestock or farm). The races became so well-established that they attracted the likes of King William IV in 1864 but just 20 years later the course closed. In 1851 Englefied Green was the site of the last fatal duel in England between two Frenchman who had fled the uprising in France. The story even caught the eye of Victor Hugo who included a brief account of it in his seminal work, Les Miserables.

    Modern Day

    The town was bombed several times during WWII with a loss of buildings and lives. Today it’s a wonderful and much sought-after location with excellent transport links and a ‘village’ feel, local events, commerce and societies are all thriving once again.
