Caterham is a town in the Tandridge District of Surrey, England. Since it joined Tandridge District in 1974, the town is administratively divided into two as Caterham on the Hill and Caterham Valley. Caterham Valley includes the main town centre in the middle of a dry valley. The town lies close to the A22, centred 21 miles (34 km) from Guildford and 6 miles (9.7 km) south of Croydon in the North Downs. Caterham on the Hill is above the valley to the west. Due to its proximity to London, Caterham is a commuter town, with small-to-medium sized businesses of its own but relatively few business/industrial parks.

For more information, see the EN Wikipedia article Caterham. There is a long "History" section covering local manor-owning families.
