House Clearance in Northolt
Northolt, a local history
Northolt was called Northala when it was first mentioned in 1086 in the Domesday Book. The name Northolt was first used at the end of the sixteenth century. It is called Northolt to distinguish it from Southolt (as Southall used to be known).
There was a settlement here in Saxon times. After the Norman Conquest it was given to Geoffrey de Mandeville, one of William’s followers. There were fifteen hides of land, a priest, seventeen villagers, three cottagers and six slaves living here. There was pasture for cattle and wood for pigs.
There must have been a church here in 1086 as a priest is listed in Domesday, but the present church dates from the fourteenth century, though parts date from the thirteenth century. This was the only church in Northolt until 1940 when work begun on St. Barnabas’ church. The most famous clergyman in Northolt was the Welsh poet, Owen Goronway, who was curate from 1755 to 1758.
In the Middle Ages, arable farming was dominant in Northolt, though there was also some woodland and meadow as well. Wheat, oats, beans and peas were the main crops. There were almost 800 sheep grazing in Northolt in 1388. This pattern of farming lasted until about 1700.
