The Home Counties Magazine, Vol. 14 free pdf Excerpt from The Home Counties Magazine, Vol. 14: Devoted to the Topography of London, Middlesex, Essex, Herts, Bucks, Surrey, Kent, and Sussex Long Ditton is a village and parish in the Deanery of Ewell, comprising the two manors of Long Ditton and Tolworth, which are separated, the one from the other, by the parish of Kingston. The principal buildings are the church, erected in 1880, of which I shall speak later on, the National Schools, built in 1873, the Parish Hall and Workmen's Club, and the rectory. The latter is a picturesque, half-timbered building of the Tudor period- to it was added by the Rev. Jervis T. Giffard (who preceded the late Mr. Hughes in the living) a wing, the architecture of which does not harmonize with the main structure. The living is a rectory in the Rural Deanery of Kingston, with a rent charge, and about fifteen acres of glebe, and is in the gift of Mr. Thomas B. Hughes, the brother of the late Rector. Ecclesiastically the parish has had a remarkable experience: originally in the diocese of Winchester, it was transferred years ago to Rochester, and is now in Southwark. The name of Ditton is not uncommon in England, and may perhaps be derived from the dykes along the banks of the Thames- this derivation, if correct, would point to Thames Ditton being the earlier settlement. At the time of the Domesday Survey, one Picot held Ditune of Richard Fitz Gilbert, and answered for four hides- Almar had been the Saxon owner, who had answered for five hides. In the time of Edward the Confessor it was worth 60s. a year- after the Conquest the value fell to 30s.- but it was recovering, and in 1087 was worth 50s.
