    5 Quickfire Esher Facts

    1. Early Doors
      Esher`s first known settlers set up home in the Mesolithic period, around 5000 years BC. Further evidence proves habitation in the Middle Iron Age, 300BC. The Romans gave Esher a miss, but Saxon graves have been found. By the time of the Domesday Book, 1086, the village had grown to a massive… 37 villagers.
    2. Rocking Good Place
      George Harrison had a house in Esher called Kinfauns where the other Beatles and friends such as Eric Clapton would often visit. The Bee Gees also had a home in Esher called ‘The Firs’, from 1970 to 2004 where they wrote and recorded a number of hits.
    3. By Royal Approval
      Other notable residents include Cardinal Wolsey in 1529. Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold took up residence at Claremont House in 1813, Queen Victoria later lent the house to the exiled French King Louis-Philippe and Queen Marie-Amelie after the French revolution of 1848. The house had originally been built by Clive of India with gardens by Capability Brown.
    4. A Bit Common
      Esher Common covers 360 hectares and is officially a Site of Special Scientific Interest with a rich variety of ponds, woodland, plant life, insects, birds and mammals.
    5. Write On
      The 1839 Pigot & Company’s directory said of Esher, ‘as a place of business, it is not to be regarded: but as one where nature and art have delighted to wantonly and harmoniously unite to deck its neighbourhood, it cannot but be noted’. It’s also where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle based Sherlock Holmes mystery, The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge.

    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.

    - Helen Williams – May 2021

    Early Days

    Sitting on land not much use for farming, the area Esher sits in wasn’t settled much. The first recording of the town comes in the Domesday Book (1086) when it was jointly owned by the Bishop of Bayeux, Chertsey Abbey and ‘Odard the Gunner’, a French nobleman.

    Over's Removals

    Sandon Priory was founded in the reign of Henry II (1154-1189). Like many priories it collected taxes from the locals. In 1349 the Black Death arrived, and just like taxes it couldn’t be ignored, taking most of the brothers. The survivors were joined by new monks but their questionable behaviour (which wasn’t very pious!) and spending made the priory bankrupt. The name was revived with the arrival of Sandown Racecourse in 1875.

    13th Century

    By the 13th century Esher was under the ownership of the Bishop of Winchester forming part of a huge swathe of land owned by the church covering most of Surrey. Much of this land was later scooped up by Henry VIII in 1538 who littered the landscape with palaces (much to the annoyance of the clergy he’d kicked out).

    1700s

    The next big shot to arrive was architect Sir John Vaughn in 1708. He built himself an impressive mansion which he sold to Thomas Pelham, Earl of Clare. Pelham paid Vaughn to extend and remodel the house he named Claremont in his own honour. Following the Duke’s death the house passed through several hands including Clive of India (another controversial figure) who knocked it down and built a new pile with gardens by Capability Brown. Clive committed suicide in 1774 and the house was eventually snapped up by the royals.

    19th Century

    Prince Charlotte and Prince Leopold (the future King of Belgium) lived there. It was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite childhood homes, and in 1848 when King Louis Philippe went into exile he lived at Claremont. The house is now a rather impressive school.

    Over's Truck

    During the royal comings and goings, Esher had become a stop on the London to Portsmouth road, (notorious for being hit by highwaymen). The town grew wealthy and eventually with the arrival of the railway it became a favoured spot for London merchants and remains a popular commuter location to this day.

    It also had rock royalty come to visit. George Harrison bought a house called Kinauns where the other Beatles would visit. Maurice Gibb was another neighbour and both artists had their own home recording studios and wrote songs while living in Esher.
