Bathingbourne was the name of a manor in the ancient civil parish of Godshill. It was alternatively known as "Baddingbourne" and "Bangbourne"[2] in the 16th century, but before that it was earlier known as Beaddingaburn (10th century, Bedingeborne (11th century), Baddingebourne (13th century), and Bathyngbourne (14th century).[3] Bathingbourne was one of five manors granted by King Eadwig (reigned 955-959) to members of his thegn, although a previous charter of King Edred (reigned 946-955) also parcelled out this land, but Edred's charter divided the land along different boundaries.[3] The Domesday Book in 1086 listed Bathingbourne in its records of English settlements.[4][5]
