History

To the south of the area now known as Carshalton, remains of artifacts dating from the Neolithic to the Iron Age have been found, suggesting that this was an early place of habitation.[3] Prior to the Norman Conquest it is recorded that there were five manors in this location owned by five freemen.[4]
