A Little Bit About Mitcham
The toponym “Mitcham” is Old English in origin and believed to mean big settlement. Before the Romans and Saxons were present, there was a Celtic settlement in the area, with evidence of a hill fort in the Pollards Hill area.
The Saxon graveyard, located on the North bank of the Wandle is the largest discovered to date, and many of the finds are on display in the British Museum. The area is a possible location for the Battle of Merton, 871, in which King Ethelred of Wessex was either mortally wounded or killed outright.
Although it was mostly rebuilt in 1819–21, the current building retains the original Saxon tower.
There were many lavender fields in Mitcham, and peppermint and lavender oils were also distilled there. In 1749 two local physic gardeners, John Potter and William Moore, founded a company to make and market toiletries made from locally-grown herbs and flowers. Lavender features on Merton Council’s coat of arms and the badge of the local football team, Tooting & Mitcham United F.C.
