Meaning & History

From Boughton, which means "farmstead where the beech-tree grows" from Old English boc meaning "beech tree" and tun "enclosure, farmstead", combined with Malherbe, a manorial affix taken from the 13th-century owner Robert de Malherbe, distinguishing the village from others with the same name (all of which Domesday Book records as Boltune or Boltone).

Boughton Malherbe is a village and civil parish in the Maidstone district of Kent, England.
