the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

Tatsfield is a village and civil parish occupying the north-eastern corner of Surrey, bordering Greater London and Kent, with almost all of its homes on the escarpment of the North Downs and many outlying farms. Its local government District is the Tandridge.

Tatsfield is covered by the Westerham post town which is in Kent. This gave Tatsfield residents postal addresses once associated with Kent until 1992 when the old postal county names, those relevant to the post towns, became irrelevant in UK postal addresses.

Tatsfield was part of the Godstone Rural District from 1894 until 1974 and of the Tandridge District since 1974.

For more information, see the EN Wikipedia article Tatsfield. Includes sections on various manors in the area and their owners over time.
