Parish History

'CLEYGATE [or known as CLEYGATE], a manor, in the parish of ThamesDitton, Second division of the hundred of Kingston, union of Kingston, E. division of Surrey, 1¾ mile (E. S. E.) from Esher; containing 940 inhabitants. It was given to the convent of Westminster by Tosti, probably the son of Earl Godwin, and the grant was confirmed by Edward the Confessor. The Domesday survey records that "Claigate" was then still held by the monks, and the lands continued in their possession until the Dissolution. A district church was consecrated in December, 1840, and dedicated to the Trinity; it is a composition of the later Norman and early English styles, and has a square tower crowned by an octagonal spire at the north-east angle: the cost was £1600.'[1]
