Administrative/Biographical history:

Harmondsworth was a large manor in the county of Middlesex. It had several hamlets including Heath Row, now the site of the busiest airport in the world. The name is derived from Heremod's worth (enclosure). The manor was granted by William I to the Abbey of Rouen in 1069. It later belonged to William of Wykeham who gave it as part of his endowment to Winchester College in 1391. It passed to Henry VIII in 1543 and in 1547 was granted to the Paget family. On the disgrace of Thomas, Lord Paget it passed to Queen Elizabeth who leased the manor to Sir Christopher Hatton but it was returned to the Paget family in 1604. The manor remained in the Paget family, Earls of Uxbridge and later Marquesses of Anglesey until the mid nineteenth century.
