in pale sable''Debrett's Peerage, 1968, Carew Baronets, p.155 These were the arms shown on the seal of "Nicholas de Carreu" (c.1255–1311), appended to the Barons' Letter, 1301, which he joined as "Lord of Moulsford" and which were Blazon for the same bearer in the Caerlaverock Poem or Roll of Arms of 1300, when he was present at the Siege of Caerlaverock Castle. From him are descended the Carew baronets of Antony and of Haccombe, the Earl of Totnes and Baron Carew]]
Beddington Park was the former manor house of the Carew family, lost to money lenders (see George Samuel Ford (bill discounter)) and bad debts by Charles Hallowell Hallowell Carew in the 1850s. The ''Domesday Book'' mentions two Beddington estates and these were united by Nicholas Carew (Lord Privy Seal) to form Carew Manor in 1381. The Manor, once a medieval moated house, was home to the Royal Female Orphanage from 1866 until 1968. It now contains council offices and Carew Manor School.

In about 1591 Sir Walter Raleigh secretly, and without royal permission, married one of Queen Elizabeth I's maid of honour, Elizabeth Raleigh of Carew Manor. Raleigh spent time in the Tower of London for this and Elizabeth was expelled from the court but the marriage appears to have been a genuine love-match and survived the imprisonment. A popular story is that when Raleigh was beheaded by James I of England in 1618, Elizabeth claimed his embalmed head and kept it in a bag for the rest of her life. His body was buried in St. Margaret's, Westminster, and after his wife's death 29 years later, Raleigh's head was returned to his tomb and interred at St. Margaret's Church.John Lloyd (producer) & John Mitchinson: "The Book of General I. Local myths claim the head remains in Beddington park or was inherited by his son and buried with him.

The Grade I listed building great hall (or banqueting hall),[http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-206699-beddington-place-great-hall-only-walling Beddington Place (Great Hall Only), Sutton] containing a fine hammerbeam roof, survives from the mediaeval house. In the grounds are part of the orangery built in the early 18th century around orange trees planted by Sir Francis Carew (claimed to be the first planted in England) and an early 18th-century Grade II* listed dovecote.[http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-206705-pigeon-house-to-north-west-of-beddington Pigeon House to North West of Beddington Place, Sutton]

Queen Elizabeth's Walk is a short wooded trail that dates back to the first Elizabeth. Local legend has it that the Monarch and Sir Walter Raleigh used to stroll together there . However, this was actually land left unused for the proposed M23 motorway extension.

Archaeologists have recently discovered a Tudor garden including a grotto at Carew Manor, believed to have been created by Sir Francis Carew in the 16th century. Its exact location is currently not being disclosed in order to protect it from looting.

The 14th Century flint parish church of St Mary's is situated in the park next to the house. It is Grade B listed, [http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-206694-parish-church-of-st-mary-the-virgin-wall Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Sutton] and contains an organ screen by William Morris.
