  • Part of Esher ; see other manors, or

parts of manors, held by the Bishop of Bayeux, the Abbey of Chertsey, and the Church of the Cross of St. Leutfred under the same name. This might be Sandon (vulg.

The name occurs in Chertsey charters of A.D. 812 and 1062 as belonging to the Abbey. Oswold, we may remember, was brother to the Abbot. Now, Pickets Hole, on the edge of the chalk downs, about half way between Effingham village and Wotton House, may preserve the name. The later manor of Polesden would be then included in it, and Oswold would hold a compact estate from Effingham to Wotton. i.*. 12 (7- H.
