Ickenham

Ickenham is an area centred on an old village in Greater London, forming the eastern part of Uxbridge and within the London Borough of Hillingdon. While no major historical events have taken place in Ickenham, settlements dating back to the Roman occupation of Britain have been discovered during archaeological surveys, the area appears in the Domesday Book. Buildings from the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries remain standing and have been restored in recent years; the village was split into four manors, but there were two: Ickenham and Swakeleys. The old manorial home of Swakeleys, a 17th-century Jacobean mansion Swakeleys House still stands, much of the Swakeleys estate was sold for housing in the 1920s. Ickenham's manorial home, Manor Farm, now forms part of Long Lane Farm. A military station, RAF West Ruislip, was opened in 1917, its final use was for the Navy Exchange of the U. S. Naval Activities, United Kingdom command between 1975 and 2006. At the 1901 Census, Ickenham had a population of 329.

By the 2011 Census, the population had reached 10,387. When Ickenham obtained a railway station on the Metropolitan Railway's line between Harrow and Uxbridge, a great deal of residential development started in the village, it became part of the London commuter belt. Ickenham expanded with the sale and development of much of the Swakeleys estate in 1922 and became part of what was termed "Metro-land". Ickenham appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 three times under the name "Ticheham". Translated from Latin, the second entry reads: Manor Ickenham answers for 9½ hides. 3 men-at-arms and 1 Englishman hold it from Earl Roger. Land for 6 ploughs. 6 villagers with 1 hide. Meadow for 4 ploughs. Total value £4; the Domesday Book describes the land as being predominantly flat and composed of London clay with the exception of alluvium along the banks of the River Pinn. Of the few archaeological surveys of Ickenham carried out, one in 1994 by the Museum of London found a system of Roman fields dating back to the 1st and 2nd centuries, along with pottery fragments.

Research suggest that the area may have been abandoned for a period following the departure of the Romans from Britain around AD 410. Ickenham was divided into the four manors of Ickenham, Tykenham and Herses. Tykenham and Herses were within the parish of Hillingdon, though Herses subsequently became part of the manor of Swalcliff; these manors were merged to form the main manors of Ickenham and Swakeleys. The original lord of the manor of Ickenham was Geoffrey de Mandeville, from whom it passed to William de Brock and in 1334, to John Charlton whose son John owned Swakeleys from 1350. By the mid-14th century, Ickenham was owned by the Shorediche family who retained possession until 1819; the Crosier family, major landowners in north-west Middlesex, moved to Ickenham in the 16th century. They established their manorial home as Sherwyns, owned Home Farm and Sears house in 1624. After the Shorediche family Milton Farm was bought by William Crosier in 1685. Edward Hilliard become the direct descendant of the final member of the Crosier family, John Crosier.

Under the Hilliards, Milton Farm was sold to become part of the Swakeleys estate in 1816, Hill Farm become Northolt Aerodrome in 1916. The Shorediche family built their manor house on a track off Long Lane. Called Ickenham Hall, it was let out to farmers in 1818 and renamed Manor Farm, at which point the Crosier family renamed their manorial home from Sherwyns to Ickenham Hall. Swakeleys manor, subordinate to Ickenham, was named after Robert Swalcliffe, who owned the manor with his wife Joan in the 14th century, he appears in records as Robert de Swalclyve and Robert de Wykeham, reflecting his ownership of Swakeleys and Wickham Park in Oxfordshire. In 1347, he owed £40 to a money lender, Roger Rikeman, which he was unable to pay, so his land in Ickenham was passed by Rikeman in 1350 to John de Charlton. A descendant of John de Charlton, the first Sir Thomas de Charlton, died in 1448 whereupon Swakeleys passed to his son named Sir Thomas, who became Speaker of the House of Commons and Member of Parliament for Middlesex.

He died in 1465. Sir Richard was killed fighting on the side of Richard III during the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485; the victor of the battle, Henry VII, named him in his Act of Attainder, though he granted Sir Richard's wife Elizabeth a life interest in the manor. However, Sir Thomas Bourchier was subsequently granted the manor of Covelhall. Upon Sir Thomas' death in 1510, the manor passed to Sir John Peeche as his executor. Sir John had no children, so Swakeleys passed to the Earl of Devon, Henry Courteney in 1521; the Earl granted a licence to control Swakeleys to Sir William Fitzwilliam in 1531, acting as trustee for Ralph Pexall. The lords of the manor of Swakeleys resided at Swakeleys House, though the house that stands today was not the first on the site; the original dated to around the 14th century and was constructed of wattle and timber. It was subject to extensive remedial work, much lamented at the time, while under the ownership of John Bingley. Bingley sold the estate to Sir Edmund Wright, a future Lord Mayor of London, in 1629, the current house was built of brick in 1638.
