Chaldon is a village in Surrey, England, high on the North Downs immediately west of Caterham. Chaldon is centred WSW of Caterham on the Hill, south of London and falls within the boundaries of Tandridge district, just south of the border with the London Borough of CroydonHistoryEtymology and Dark AgesChalvedune is the first written record of the place in 675 AD, meaning the hill where calves were pastured, in a grant of land to Chertsey Abbey. Prior to this period of human history, White Hill on the borders of Chaldon and Caterham has yielded neolithic flints.The village lay within the Anglo-Saxon administrative division of Wallington hundred.Middle AgesIn the Domesday Book the manor of Calvedone appears in Wallington hundred rendering £4 to its lord Ralph Fitz Turold holding it as was most of the hundred of Bishop Odo of Bayeux. Prior to the conquest it had been held by the Saxon lord Dernic of King Edward. It consisted of two hides, land for two lord's plough teams and a church. In medieval times the parish included a narrow strip of land below the southern foot of the Downs and a wedge of land to the north of the church that in the 19th century were transferred to Bletchingley and Coulsdon respectively — these are omitted from this article.
