A Little Bit About Ham
Its name derives from the Old English word Hamme meaning place in the bend in the river.
Although not appearing in the Domesday Book of 1086 the nearby Petersham to the north and Coombe to the southeast are listed.
Situated between the Royal Courts at Richmond and Hampton Court, the predominantly agricultural area developed from the beginning of the 17th century, with the construction of Ham House in 1610, the best preserved survivor of the period.
When the park was enclosed by Charles I in 1637, Ham parish lost the use of most of the affected land, over 800 acres stretching towards Robin Hood Gate and Kingston Hill, almost half of which was common land. In return for this, a deed was struck which has effectively protected most of the remaining common land, Ham Common, to the present day. The enclosed land, whilst lost to agriculture, remained within Ham’s administrative boundaries.
Ham house has changed little in 300 years, and the same applies to its formal gardens, which feature the oldest orangery in Britain, an icehouse and a dairy. It is claimed by the National Trust to be “unique in Europe as the most complete survival of 17th century fashion and power.
Situated in TW10, Ham is predominately a commuter residential area dependent on employment outside the immediate area. Education includes Meadlands Primary School, The Russell School, St Richards and St Andrews CofE School, and Grey Court School.
