Milton Bryan Before 1086

No prehistoric or Roman finds have been recorded in the parish, neither have any for the Dark Ages but the fact that a settlement is recorded in the Domesday Book shows that there was a settlement here by 1066 at the very latest. It has been suggested that Milton Bryan and Battlesden may once have formed a single estate and were divided at some point before the Conquest - the zig-zag nature of the boundary between the two being cited as evidence of following existing field boundaries.
