Elmbridge (hundred)

Elmbridge (hundred)

Elmbridge was a hundred in what is now Surrey, England. It includes the borough of Elmbridge.

Elmbridge appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Amelebrige". Elmbridge was a hundred (these are not marked on the Surrey map, which shows only Domesday manors), an administrative area, where local leaders met about once a month. [ [http://www.gwp.enta.net/surrnames.htm Surrey domesday book] ]

Settlements within the hundred included: Cobham, Esher, East and West Molesey, Stoke D'Abernon, Thames Ditton, Walton-on-Thames and Weybridge.

Surbiton had an elm tree on its crest as it once lay within the Elmbridge hundred. [ [http://www.civicheraldry.co.uk/surrey_ob.html Civic heraldry] ]
