History of Doddingtree

 

Doddingtree Estate Agents cover all of the Wyre Forest (Bewdley, Kidderminster & Stourport-on-Severn), as well as the surrounding areas but there is more to our name than you may think.

We opened for business in November 2017 and chose the name Doddingtree because it has local historical significance to Bewdley and Worcestershire.

 

In 1066 Ralph de Todeni was granted The Hundred of Doddingtree by William the Conqueror as a reward for his services as Standard bearer during the Norman Conquest. 


Doddingtree consisted mainly of west Worcestershire and had two divisions: 

The upper division consisted of the Manors of Acton Beauchamp; Abberley; Alfrick; Areley Kings; Berrington; Bockleton; Clifton-upon-Teme; Cotheridge; Eastham; Edvin Loach; Hanley Child; Hanley William; Hillhampton Kyre Minor; Kyre Wyard; Martley; Lulsley; Orleton; Sapey Pritchard; Shelsley Kings; Shelsley Walsh; Stanford-on-Teme; Stockton-on-Teme; Suckley; Sutton and Tenbury.

 

The lower division consisted of the Manors of Abberley; Astley; Alton; Bayton; Bewdley; Doddenham; Dowles; Glasshampton; Mamble; Ribbesford; Great Witley; Rochford; Shelsley Beauchamp; Rock; Shrawley and Stockton.
