Swaffham as a permanent settlement did not exist until Saxon times, after the Romans left this country to defend Rome from the barbarians. There is evidence, such as stone implements and tools dug up in this area to suggest that it was inhabited 300,000 years ago. Further discoveries of weapons and tools excavated which give evidence of human existence in the area during the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. Some of these artifacts can be seen today in Swaffham Museum. There were Roman settlements, probably large villas or farmsteads, around Swaffham. Many coins of the period have been found, some near Peddars Way, an ancient track way, running north to South from Holme Next The Sea near Brancaster through Norfolk and Suffolk to Essex. When the Romans were driven to defend Rome by Germanic tribes, such as the Goths, the Huns and the Visigoths, Anglos and Saxons in their turn were pushed to find new land even further west. They found a land of forests and a temperate climate across the North Sea.
Here they settled but having no time for the Roman way of life, its architecture and its urban settlements, they demolished the towns, villas and the farmsteads to settle in small tribal groups hams or tons. Gradually the dark ages disappeared. Christianity was introduced and people were slowly given a veneer of civilization. The church curbed the wild, brutal behaviour of many Anglo-Saxon rulers. In some areas a form of feudalism was introduced based on the three-field system of rotation of crops, leaving one field fallow, in turn each year. Where this system existed it set in motion the system of law and government at the head of which were the thanes and the king. Norfolk was part of one of the 7 Saxon kingdoms, which was vulnerable to attacks from raiders from across the North Sea, the Vikings. These fierce explorers saw a rich, fertile land, very similar to North Germany and Denmark. Eventually they did more than raid the area; they settled here and tried to conquer the whole of Angle-land.
All land in England now belonged to William the Conqueror. He distributed manors to his followers. His policy was to give them parcels of land in various parts of the country to dilute their power. In Swaffham, Ralph Guader had held the manor for King Harold before 1066. From that date until the 14th Century the Earls of Richmond were the Lords of the Manor. When Henry VII became King in 1485 the manor of Swaffham reverted to the Crown. During Elizabeth I reign (1558-1603), Swaffham counted as 2 manors one of which was granted to Sir Henry Bedingfield, a staunch Catholic, the other to Philip Strelley. Richard Hamond finally bought the manorial rights in 1730, where they resided in the Hamond (Harbord-Hamond) family until 1957. The estate now belongs to Messer Heygate. Through the ages, the church dominated everyones life. Not only did it provide spiritual guidance, it was also part of the government (local & national) of this country. Swaffham has a splendid church dating back to 1454. It was built to replace one, which collapsed, but was not finished until 1510. Its most striking feature is the finely carved hammer-beam roof. It is an elegant building, full of light and atmosphere, beautifully proportioned, a real joy to the eye.
