The name Wokingham comes from “Wocca’s People’s Home”. Wocca was a Saxon whose followers farmed much of the land in this area, notably also Wokefield. Their main home, however, was at Woking (Surrey). It was, up until this century, known as Oakingham, but this was a corruption that has now been dispensed with.
Wokingham was noted for its Bell Foundry in Medieval times. As early as 1383 the industry was well established in the town, and many local churches ring out on Wokingham Bells. Only Bell Foundry Lane now remains (although the foundry was in the centre of town), for by the late 16th century the business had relocated in Reading. At about the same time, Flemish weavers fleeing from religious persecution made Wokingham famous for its manufacture of silken goods. In the 19th century, though, this trade declined due to cheap French imports and the townspeople turned to other industries: leatherworking, wool-dealing, brick-making, brewing and coach-building! The Lush Brothers made coaches for King Edward VII, Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein and Empress Eugenie of the French.
Historic buildings in the town include the 15th century Overhangs, associated with the Windsor Forest Verderers’ Courts, in Peach Street and much changed medieval hall houses in Rose Street. The 16th century mansion at the junction of the A321 and A329 has a superb timber-framed facade, but it is not original. It was brought from a house in Binfield in the 1920s. Wokingham’s almshouses are said to be the finest building in the town, called the Lucas Hospital after their benefactor, they were built through a bequest of 1665. The church was originally a chapel-of-ease to that at Sonning. It dates back to the 13th century but was heavily restored in 1864. Inside, there is a fine Royal Arms of Elizabeth I’s time (1582) and a memorial to local man, Thomas Godwin, a 16th century Bishop of Bath & Wells. The churchyard, meanwhile, has the most extraordinary monument to the wife and nephew of one Benjamin Beaver (1761). Inscribed on a huge block of Portland stone is this man’s full family history back to the time of Charles I. It recounts many tales of woe brought on by the Civil War, including how a Beaver ancestor, along with his brother-in-law, Richard Harrison (See Hurst), was almost ruined raising three troops of horse for the King at their own expense.
During the Civil War, the Royalist garrison from Reading arrived in Wokingham, demanding that the townspeople fill eight carts full with firewood and bedding. When they refused, the troops burnt four town houses to the ground. The occupiers were told to take themselves off to parliament-supporting Windsor. By the time of the restoration, about twenty percent of the town had been destroyed in the upheaval. This, despite the fact that the commander-in-chief of the Berkshire troops was himself a Wokingham man. Major-General Sir Richard “Moses” Browne grew up in the town. He was the man who led Charles II’s triumphant procession into London at the Restoration.
