The name 'Gravesham'

Robert H Hiscock, Chairman of the Gravesend Historical Society, writing a forward to his book, 'A History of Gravesend' (Phillimore, 1976) said:


"The name Gravesham appears only in the Domesday Book, 1086, and was probably the error of a Norman scribe. It was 'Gravesend' in the Domesday Monarchorum c.1100, and 'Gravesende' in the Textus Roffensis c.1100. It is strange that this 'clerical error' has now been adopted for the name of the new Council". Domesday Book (also known as Domesday, or Book of Winchester), was the record of the great survey of England completed in 1086, executed for William the Conqueror, that was like a census by the government today. ...
