1826: The Henley Guide
REMENHAM is a pleasant little village, situated near
the Thames, about a mile from Henley, and nearly
opposite Fawley Court and the Island.
The villa of E. Gardiner, Esq. by its picturesque grounds and beautiful situation claims notice. It is situated near the foot-path, which leads by the banks of the river to this pretty and retired spot. From hence a secluded and rural lane leads to Culham.
The manor, in the reign of Henry the Sixth, was the property of the Monfort Family. Lord Lovelace died seised of it in 1634. From this family it passed, by purchase, to the Whitlocks. Lord Hamilton was the next possessor. It is now the property of W. P. Williams Freeman, Esq.
