History

The area lay in the Brixton (hundred) hundred (county subdivision) of Surrey, until these faded into obscurity not least as these were not a major economic possession in most of the evolution of the feudal system, and became more of a unit of land used for taxation.

;Manor
Throughout its history, East Sheen has not formed an independent unit of administration and was instead included as part of the Mortlake parish which not a borough, nonetheless had a largely secular vestry to help administer poor relief, maintain roads, ditches and other affairs.[http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/descriptions/entry_page.jsp?text_id=988410&word=East+Sheen IGEW] John Marius Wilson: ''Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales'' (1870–72) Earliest references specifically to the present area of land, not under references to the once far longer land of Mortlake emerge in the 13th century, generally under its early name of Westhall. Originally one carucate it was sold in 1473 by Michael Gaynsford and Margaret his wife in the right of Margaret to William Welbeck, citizen and haberdasher, of London. The Welbecks held it until selling in 1587. Later owners of what remained, the Whitfields, Juxons and Taylors were equally not titled, as with Mortlake, nor had an above average size or lavish manor house.

;Development of the Temple Grove, Palmerston country estate
sold the southern purported manor to private developers as a young man.]]
The southern estate of Temple Grove, East Sheen, first belonged to Sir Cullen baronets, created a baronet in 1661. He died in 1668, and his son Sir John in 1677. The latter's son Sir Rushout Cullen seems to have sold the estate shortly afterwards to Sir John Temple (judge), attorney-general of Ireland, brother to Sir William Temple, diplomat and author, who was earlier of adjoining West Sheen, giving the home his name. It belonged to the Temples until Henry Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston, politician his grandson of the same profession sold it soon after coming of age in 1805, who would later would serve as Foreign Secretary three times and twice as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. It was bought by Sir Thomas Bernard, who rebuilt the Jacobean architecture front of the house shown in a drawing hung in the house of 1611. Sir Thomas sold it about 1811 to the Rev. William Pearson who founded the Temple Grove Preparatory School for boys which moved in 1907 to Eastbourne and the estate was given over to house and apartment builders as demand rose for work in the City of London and park-side London retirement properties.

It was included in the Metropolitan Police District in 1840. From 1892 to 1894 Mortlake (including East Sheen) formed part of the expanded Municipal Borough of Richmond (Surrey).Vision of Britain – [http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/relationships.jsp?u_id=10058843 Mortlake parish] ([http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/bound_map_page.jsp?first=true&u_id=10058843&c_id=10001043 historic map]) In 1894 nearby North Sheen was created as a civil parish, being split off from Mortlake and remaining in the Municipal Borough of Richmond.Vision of Britain – [http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/relationships.jsp?u_id=10037098&c_id=10001043 North Sheen parish] ([http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/bound_map_page.jsp?first=true&u_id=10037098&c_id=10001043 historic map]) The remainder of Mortlake (including East Sheen) was instead transferred to Municipal Borough of Barnes.Vision of Britain – [http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/relationships.jsp?u_id=10061600 Barnes UD/MB] ([http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/bound_map_page.jsp?first=true&u_id=10061600&c_id=10001043 historic map])
