Cuddington was a large chapelry in Surrey with a small population in the Tudor period the clustered centre of which was demolished and it never had a parish of its own. Cuddington was formally merged into Cheam and into Ewell to which it was a hamlet after having made way for Henry VIII's Nonsuch Palace in the east of the parish of Ewell.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Cuddington from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"CUDDINGTON, a parish in Epsom [registration] district, Surrey; near Cheam [railway] station, and 1 mile NNE of Ewell. Post town: Ewell, under Epsom. Acres: 1,827. Real property: returned with Ewell. Population: 148. Houses: 30. Nonsuch Palace, noticed in our article Cheam, was here. The parish has no church; and ranks ecclesiastically as part of Ewell."
