A little bit of history
The earliest recorded mention of Banstead was in an Anglo-Saxon charter of AD 967 in the reign of King Edgar. The settlement appears in the Domesday Book (1086) as Benestede. The first element is probably the Anglo-Saxon word bene, meaning bean, and the second element stede refers to an inhabited place without town status.
