    Facts About Sunbury-on-Thames

    Sunbury-on-Thames History

    Eevidence of occupation in Sunbury is provided by the discovery of Bronze Age funerary urns dating from the 10th century BC. There is an important scheduled monument in Rooksmead Road, a prehistoric bowl barrow, known as Cloven Barrow, situated on low-lying ground that was formerly part of the flood plain of the River Thames, now around 1 km to the south.

    Cloven Barrow was mentioned in an Anglo-Saxon document, known as the Sunbury Charter, which has been dated to around AD 962. Many years later the arrival of Huguenot refugees gave the name to French Street. The place-name ‘Sunbury’ is first attested in a Saxon charter circa 960-2, where it appears as Sunnanbyrg. Another charter of 962 lists it as Sunnanbyrig.
