    5 Quickfire Ewell Facts

    1. Henry’s Gaff
      In 1538 Henry VIII ordered the destruction of the village of Cuddington to make way for what he decided was going to be his finest palace ever. Constructed entirely from wood, NonSuch Palace’s name was a boast that there was no such place anywhere to match its ‘magnificence’. Henry died before it was finished. The house had several notable guests until 1670 when King Charles II gave it to his mistress Barbara Countess of Castlemaine. A real party girl, the countess was forced to have the house pulled down and the timber sold to pay off her gambling debts.
    2. Gunpowder Spot
      The Hogsmill River powered several mills over the years including a gunpowder mill which opened in 1754 and stayed in business for over 100 years despite being completely destroyed by an explosion in 1863.
    3. Springing Into Place
      Ewell originally grew around a spring. The Saxons settled there but the site has revealed artefacts showing signs of Roman settlement and Bronze Age items. The spring is one of a number that mark the line where the chalk of the North Downs meets the clay of the London Basin.
    4. 16 Quid
      By 1086 the Domesday Book recorded Ewell had 48 villagers and 4 smallholders, with 14 acres of meadow, pasture, pigs, woodland, 2 mills and was valued at 16 pounds.
    5. Famous Faces
      The 17th century diarist Samuel Pepys visited Ewell on several occasions. Petula Clark and Michaela Strachan were both born in Ewell. Chelsea FC hardman Ron ‘Chopper’ Harris also made Ewell his home.

    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

    Over's Removals

    Ewell’s name is believed to derive from the Old English ‘æwell’, which referred to the springs or river at Hogsmill, the first mention of Ewell (“Euuelle” ) appears in the foundation charter of Chertsey Abbey in 675.

    Archaeological evidence shows signs of settlement during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Ewell village was a sizeable settlement on Stane Street, a Roman road that ran from London to Chichester. Roman Ewell didn’t have the regular Roman grid street plan, but instead ran along both sides of the road, these buildings had mortared foundations, chalk floors and cobbles. There is further evidence the road detoured into Ewell to Hogsmill springs, providing water for travellers where they would leave offerings for their gods.

    11th Century

    After the Romans cleared off, the Saxons set up home and it was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as a royal manor. It remained in the hands of the King until given to Merton Priory in 1158. During this time it had its own head tithingman (who collected taxes and was responsible for keeping the peace) and an ale-taster (whose important job was to ensure ale was of appropriate quality, a very important role). In 1121 both positions were held by the same man, John Herner atte Welle who lived near Cakeswell, not a bad gig!

    16th Century

    In 1538 Ewell lost a large portion of its land when Henry VIII started building Nonsuch Palace (so named because it was to be so magnificent that ‘non-such’ place would have been seen before. Henry owned 55 palaces during his reign, and you thought he had a lot of wives!! The palace was still incomplete when Henry died in 1547. It was finished by the Earl of Arundel in 1556 and stood until 1682-83, when Barbara, Countess of Castlemaine (quite the party animal!) had it demolished and the materials sold for building to pay off her gambling debts.

    18th Century

    Hogsmill River continued to be of great importance and was the site of a gunpowder mill which opened in 1754 and ran for over 100 years. Employees would be required to change into clothes without any pockets, to stop anyone smuggling in matches, pipes or tobacco, and had to wear wooden shoes without any nails or metal fittings. After two major explosions (there were a number of huge incidents at powder mills across England around this time) in 1863 and 1865, local residents campaigned for the mill to close. Ewell Vestry passed a resolution in September 1865 condemning the accumulation of gunpowder at Ewell Station.

    19th Century

    It was the opening of the railway in 1847 that brought prosperity and saw the population grow. Still mostly a rural, agricultural community, the electrification of the railways in the 1920s changed things forever. Faster and more frequent trains to London brought wealthy Londoners to previously unknown commuter locations with a huge amount of development taking place around Stoneleigh Station, previously an area of farmland.

    20th Century

    In 1933 Ewell, Cuddington and other parishes merged to become Epsom & Ewell Urban District Council. Today, this much sought-after location is prime commuter country within easy reach of London, Heathrow and the pristine Surrey countryside. It’s little wonder it’s so popular with modern house-hunters.
