The medieval manor of Woking was in the gift of the Crown and what became Woking Palace was originally the manor house of the manor. The manor was more nor less co-terminous with the ancient parish of St Peter’s excluding the smaller manors of Sutton and Bridley. The manor also included small parts of the adjacent parishes of Horsell, Pyrford and Send.

The Lords of the Manor were always prominent persons of the day as can be seen from the following pdf files.


The Building Accounts for work done at Woking Palace are also of interest and a downloadable PDF file can be found by clicking Building Accounts. A note on Valencian and Penn tiles found in Old Woking is shown in Valencian and Penn Tiles in Woking, and on glazing at Woking in Glazing at Woking Palace.
