House Clearance in Mill Hill
Mill Hill, 1 bishop and a couple of Abbots
Mill Hill was once buried in an ancient forest that covered the most of Middlesex, Herts & Essex. The local remains of that forest being Scratchwood, which was hunted up to the 1920’s and became an Open Space in 1932, and the woods at Moat Mount, where it is likely there was an Iron Age settlement c.500BC.
Up to 410AD the Romans had some presence in the area – scattered evidence has been found and at Copthall parts of a minor road and artefacts were unearthed. Two Anglo Saxon charters speak of a settlement in north Hendon called Lothersley – somewhere along the Ridgeway. In 959AD ‘Mill Hill’ was owned by the Abbott of Westminster, and at Lothersley some 6 families were living.
After the Norman Conquest (1066), the resulting Doomsday Book (1086) entry for this area shows only 2 major Anglo-Saxon landholders and 1 bishop and 2 abbots. By 1321 the Forest was being cut down and there were pockets of habitation. The windmill that gave the name to Mill Hill is thought to have been in the Mill Field. Before the 15th century ‘Mill Hill’ remained the rural part of Hendon. The village centre was probably around the Angel Pond at the top of Milespit Hill: with cottages, The Angel & Crown alehouse – and almshouses dating from 1696.
By the early 18th century estates had been formed and large houses built, many of which exist today, – Rosebank, Littleberries, Jeannettes, Highwood House, Hocomb House and others. The staffing of houses and estate management attracted additional workers to the area. There were many farms – Bittacy, Bunns, Burton Hole, Daw’s, Dollis, Goldbeater’s, Lawrence, Mote End, Uphill, and others. These almost all disappeared under housing or other developments.
