"WOODMANSTERNE, a parish in the first division of Wallington hundred, county Surrey, 5 miles S.E. of Epsom, 4 S.W. of Croydon, and 2½ S. of the Carshalton railway station. This parish, also called Woodmanstone or Woodmansthorne, is situated on Banstead Downs, near the line of the London and Brighton railway, and contains "The Oaks," formerly an inn, but converted into a hunting seat by the late General Burgoyne, and now a seat of the Earl of Derby. The surface, which is said to be the highest ground in the county, is varied by several sheets of water, one of which, near the church, is called Mere Pond, about 420 feet above the Thames. In this parish is Stagbury, the seat of the Walpole family, and Shortes House, an old building with curiously carved wainscotting."
