History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The village is a documented settlement in the Domesday Book of 1086. The village is thought to date from Saxon times, and to be associated with the name "Medrich". The addition of the plural ending "-es" together with the familiar "-ham" ending is thought to have produced "Medrichesham" (the homestead of Medrich), which in time became corrupted to the modern name of the village.

The earliest surviving document relating to the village is dated 24 June 1314, from reign of Edward II.
