The Anglo-Saxon parish of Hampton included present-day Hampton, Hampton Hill, Hampton Wick and the hamlet of Hampton Court surrounding Hampton Court Palace which are together called the Hamptons. The name Hampton may come from the Anglo-Saxon words hamm meaning an enclosure in the bend of a river and ton meaning farmstead or settlement.
