Croydon is an ancient town; despite 150 years of continuing urban growth many reminders of this still remain. The town of Croydon is situated at the head of the River Wandle, just to the north of a significant gap in the North Downs. It lies 10 miles south of London, and the earliest settlement may have been a Roman staging post on the London-Portslade road, although conclusive evidence has not yet been found. It was the Saxons who first inhabited the area in great numbers and gave Croydon its name thought to mean either 'crooked valley' or 'saffron valley'. In the fifth to sixth centuries, it was the site of an important pagan Saxon cemetery. By the later Saxon period, it was at the heart of a huge estate belonging to the Archbishops of Canterbury. The main settlement at this time lay around the church and the archbishops' manor house, in the area still known as Old Town. Domesday Book is a survey of England, ordered by William the Conqueror in 1085 as an administrative and financial record of the land he had seized. The work was carried out in 1086, and the returns for each county were gathered together at Winchester. The original document is now held in the National Archives.

The native English were in awe of the project. 'So very narrowly did [King William] have [England] investigated', wrote the Anglo-Saxon chronicler, 'that there was no single hide nor a yard of land, nor indeed (it is a shame to relate but it seemed no shame to him to do) one ox nor one cow nor one pig which was there left out, and not put down in his record: and all these records were brought to him afterwards.' The seemingly definitive and unchallengeable nature of the survey meant that it was soon being compared to the Day of Judgement, and so it acquired the name of Domesday Book. The survey is a record of the King's tenants-in-chief and their sub-tenants in each county, and of the property they held. It lists manors, but not necessarily individual settlements. Each manor is described in terms of its agricultural resources and tenantry. Its value to its lord is given at up to three different dates: the current (1086) value, the value in 1066, and the value before the Conquest (abbreviated as 'T.R.E.', meaning 'in the time of King Edward').

Domesday Book is an enormously important historical document. It is the earliest systematic survey of landholding in England, and is unique throughout Europe. However, it is a difficult source, which is still open to reinterpretation by historians. Not only is it in heavily abbreviated Latin, but the precise meaning of many of the terms used, and the concepts behind them, remain open to debate. Furthermore, it contains numerous inconsistencies and omissions in its coverage. A full facsimile of the Surrey section, and the most authoritative modern translation, is found in The Surrey Domesday (Alecto Historical Editions, 1989). A more accessible translation is found in Domesday Book: Surrey, edited by John Morris (Phillimore, 1975). Both these translations are available in Croydon Local Studies Library. In the area covered by the modern London Borough of Croydon, Domesday Book lists six manors: one each in Croydon and Sanderstead, two in Coulsdon, and two in Addington.
