near to Beddington, Sutton, Great Britain

St Marys church, Beddington
St Marys church, Beddington
It is possible that the church at Beddington (St Mary's), first mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, was founded by either Azor the Saxon lord who owned Beddington before 1066, or Robert de Watteville who gained the manor after the Norman conquest. The Roman coffin in the dovecote and another one found nearby, however, may indicate that this site was regarded as sacred long before the Saxon-built church. There are a few fragments of Norman stonework, but, otherwise, the font is the oldest existing part of the church, and this dates from the late 12th or early 13th century.
