Administrative/Biographical history:

The Domesday book mentions several estates in Loughton, as many as 8. The greatest part of the parish belonged to Waltham Abbey, and its property became known as the Manor of Loughton. It held the manor until the Dissolution, when it passed to the Crown. It subsequently had various owners, including Mary Tudor, the Duchy of Lancaster and the Wroth family.

The manor later passed to the Maitland family, who were involved in the Epping Forest controversy of the 1870s. The Reverend John W. Maitland eventually gave up his rights over 650 acres of forest land in return for 30,000. The remaining manor lands and Loughton Hall were sold in 1944 to the London County Council for the creation of a housing estate.
