I can only scratch at the surface of the story of my ancestors, as the further I delve back the less available records exist. But I am fairly confident of my facts to the mid 18th century at this stage, and from that information have come up with a Family Tree.
There is a village in Hampshire, east of Basingstoke that bears our name - Mattingley, though sometimes spelt with an additional e, which occurs regularly when researching the family, for some unknown reason.
We are fortunate in that Herman E Mattingly produced a book in 1975 titled “The Mattingly Family in Early America” which covers the associations with the village. He writes:
The surname is derived from the village of Mattingley and the bearer would therefore have been one who dwelt "at Mattingley". The village takes its name from the Old English "Matting's leah", meaning "Matting's (or Matthew's) field", and would have grown up around a field owned by one Matting. The village is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 amongst the lands of the new king, William the Conquerer. The village was held by one Alfsi, son of Brictsi, who took over the lands from Alric who had held them under the previous king, Edward the Confessor. The village had some eleven inhabitants including three smallholders, and there was a mill valued at five shillings and a meadow of four acres. The value of the village was some thirty shillings. The village is recorded under the name Matingelege which accounts for the early spelling of this surname as Matingel. These early records of the surname date back to the thirteenth century when one Stephen de Madingel or de Matingel is noted in the Curia Regis Rolls of Hampshire and of Surrey in 1206. In 1249, in the "Calendar of Inquisition Post Mortem", in the volume for Hampshire we note the name of one Peter de Mattingley. Ellis, the owner in 1167, was apparently succeeded by Revelendus, Lord of Mattingley. Father Basil Mattingly's research reveals that Revelendus & his wife, Rose, had 3 sons, James de Oakley, Bartholomew de Oakley, & Stephen de Mattingley. Revelendus divided his possessions among his 3 sons. James de Oakley had a son, Hugh. This son, who probably died without issue, granted his part of Mattingley Manor to the Prior & Convent of Merton. Bartholomew de Oakley had a daughter Rose, who married Walter Rastall. Nevertheless, Bartholomew gave his inheritance in Mattingley to his brother, Stephen de Mattingley. In 1206 Stephen de Mattingley turned over part of his property to the Prior of Merton. His son Peter de Mattingley, in turn sold it to Geoffrey de Arundel. Eventually the Prior & Convent of Merton came into possession of all of the Manor of Mattingley. It was then merged into Holdshott, & is still part of that Manor. Thus ended the Manor of Mattingley.
The Village and Church of Mattingley today

He goes on to write about a branch that emigrated to Maryland in the 17th Century. But it is the English family I am more interested in and it would seem that they were to move from the village and settle mainly in the adjacent county of Berkshire, whose records show a number of Wills for the 17th Century.My branch were to follow a path south through Hampshire that would eventually lead them to Eling, near Southampton and then to London. I am fortunate that unlike families such as Smith, the family name appears rarely in records and one particular family is more prominent. I can be confident that Thomas Mattingly, who lived his life in Whitchurch, east of Andover in Hampshire would have been my great great great great grandfather. When he died in 1832, he is shown as having lived for 86 years, which would mean he was born in 1750. His parents may well have been Richard and Ann Mattingly who lived and were married at Wootton St Laurence, east of Whitchurch, which is the other Hampshire village with a large cluster of Mattinglys in the 18th century. There are a number of records of the christian name - Richard, which is commonly the name given to children of my ancestors, and continues today with the name my parents, gave to my brother.
The Parish records, now held at the Hampshire Record Office, are my only source of information on the early history of my family as they rarely appear to have had property and so do not show up on Voters Lists, Land Tax, Poor Rates, Wills or similar lists. I feel confident that they were employed as was the case with most villagers by the Lord of the Manor, who in this case would have been the Earl of Portsmouth, who lived at Hurstbourne Park, which was a large estate to the west of the village. There seems to be a tradition of following an occupation of Gardeners in the family and they may have been such at this time.
Thomas Mattingly was to marry Sarah, whose surname is yet to be found and in 1778, aged 28 their first child, William is baptised at All Hallows Church in Whitchurch. They were to go on and have another seven children according to the Parish Records, the last born in 1794. Sarah is to live until 1817, when her burial is recorded at the church aged 66. Thomas lives to the grand age, for those times of 82, dying in the year 1832. Whitchurch was a flourishing Market town in the 18th century at the junction of the London to Andover and Newbury to Wiltshire roads. The River Test flows to the south of the Market place and its mills serviced flour milling, silk manufacturing, woollen cloth and paper making. The town is still attractive with its Silk Mill, built in 1815 and coaching Inns. If one removes the traffic it is not too difficult to visualise it at the time of Thomas Mattingly.
Richard is born to Thomas and Sarah in 1783 and in 1808 marries Mary Mildenhall. She is the daughter of George and Elizabeth Mildenhall and is one of five children in their family. It is interesting to see that when their first child, Richard is baptised in 1810 it is in the village of North Stoneham, north of Southampton. The same church records show that earlier in 1804 and 1808, Mary and Charlotte Mattingly had been baptised. Their parents were no doubt related to Thomas and may have been the reason that he made the move to Stoneham. In 1812 Charles is born to them and the following year, Henry is baptised at St. Nicholas Church. Their stay in Stoneham is only short for in 1815 they leave the village and set up home at nearby Carmoor, Eling. Richard may well have been a Gardener, as it is this occupation that he is shown to have had when on 29th October 1815, his daughter Sarah is baptised at St. Mary’s Church in Eling. The Church records show that he is Gardener to H.T. Timson. Again in 1818, when his daughter Jane is baptised the details of his employment is repeated. Henry Timson (1768-1848) lived at Tatchbury Mount, a large Mansion, built on the site of an ancient hill fort with commanding views over the surrounding countryside towards Southampton. His family were to live there until it was eventually sold in 1927. The sales particulars in that year make fascinating reading and give an insight into the lives of the many people who worked there for the family. They owned 660 acres of the surrounding countryside and a number of houses. Richard would no doubt have rented one of these and lived his life there. He is shown to have had five children, the eldest being Charles, whose daughter Mary is baptised in 1831. The note alongside reads almost the same as the earlier one for his father, Richard – “ Tatchbury, Gardener to H.G. Timson. Esq.”
With the death of his father in 1830 it would seem that Charles was to take on his job of Domestic Gardener at the age of just 19. He had married Ann Bessant , from Minstead and they were to have seven children, including confusingly a Richard, born in 1833. The census records for this family are important as they give information on his mother, Mary who is a widow and lives on until 1853. There is a reference to her being a Pauper and her unmarried daughter, Jane who also lives in the same household as being afflicted. Later Censuses show them living at Tatchbury Lodge, which still stands and may well have been the family home of both father and son.
Henry is the younger brother of Charles Mattingly and in some ways their lives are mirrored, in that they both have large families and work for the Timsons all their lives on the Tatchbury Estate. But their occupations are different as Henry’s life is one of a Groom ( a person who is responsible for some or all aspects of the management of horses) and later a Coachman. The 1927 sales particulars show extensive stabling where he would have worked. Sadly those and the mansion house have since been demolished and only their overgrown site remains to be seen today. But the house where he bought up his family has survived at nearby Calmoor. It is shown as Calmoor Cottage in the Auction details and can be seen today, though with a number of houses since built next to it. The path he took to work can still be walked, though you have to cross a busy road to get to Tatchbury House, whose site now forms part of a Psychiatric Hospital. The extensive gardens that are now overgrown can still be seen and it is possible to imagine how it once looked. At present I have to find out what happened to his brother Richard (born 1810) and sister Sarah (born 1815). Although the censuses reveal that his “afflicted” sister Jane (born 1818) never married and spent most of her life in the household of her eldest brother, Charles. When she died aged 74, her death certificate shows her ending her days in the New Forest Workhouse.
The censuses from 1841 until 1881 supply most of the information I have found on Henry and his family. The first shows him living at Winsor, to the west of Tatchbury aged 25, employed as a Groom on the Estate. He is married to Mary (nee`Phillips) aged 30 and have 3 children – William (aged 6) Thomas (aged 3) and Mary (aged 8 months). They are to have three more children – James (born 1845), Richard (born 1846) and Charles (born 1849). But by the next census in 1851, Mary has died and Henry is bringing up five children, as it would appear that Charles has also passed on. He is now living at Calmoor Cottage, which is where he will spend the rest of his days. In 1857 his son William Henry marries Eliza Morgan in Marylebone, London, but she is to die young and his son remarries Emma Woodfield in Chelsea in 1879. Each certificate describes his son as a Coachman and he as a Groom.
By the 1861 Census he is now aged 48 and has married Ann who is 11 years older than him. His sons – James (John) and Richard are living with them and all are described as Agricultural labourers, a common all encompassing term for those who work on the land. But in 1868,Richard is to marry Elizabeth Herriot, and his father; Henry is this time described as Coachman. The 1871 Census is more revealing as he is described as being a former Groom – invalid, living with his wife Ann at Calmoor. Finally in 1881 he appears in his last census with his wife Ann living at their cottage, where he was to die, aged 68 in the same year, after a life time on the Tatchbury estate working for the Timson family.
Of his six children I wish to focus on Richard Edward, as he is my great grandfather and seems to have led a colourful life compared with his forebears. He is born in 1846 to Henry and Mary Mattingly and initially works with his father on the Tatchbury Estate at the age of 14. But in due course he moves to Brighton and in 1868, aged 22 he marries Elizabeth Herriot at Whitechapel, where her father is described as a brass finisher, no doubt as the famous Church Bell Foundry still to be found there. He is described as a Footman and his father who attends the wedding at St. Marys Church, as a Coachman. Richard and his wife are to spend much of their life now in London at a variety of addresses. The 1871 Census for Battersea shows Richard Mattingly (aged 26) living with his wife Elizabeth (aged 22) at 24 Broughton Street, his occupation is that of a Valet. In the same year William Henry is born to them and he is a Butler. George Edward Mattingly is born to the couple in 1876. He is now shown to be a Greengrocer living at 13 Blenheim Crescent, Kensington. Two years later at the baptism of my Grandfather, Richard Edward Mattingly, he has again moved this time to 229 Ebury Street in Pimlico, where he shown as a Greengrocer. Again in 1880, when Caroline is baptised, he has moved to a new address, this time 100 Southville in South Lambeth. The following year at the time of the Census he is a Greengrocer living at 76 Shakespeare Road in Brixton with his wife Elizabeth and family including Richard, Jnr., than aged three. By 1883 at the baptism of his daughter, Rose, the family are living at 9 Eagle Terrace, Brook Green, Hammersmith. When Ellen Louis is baptised in 1885 he at a new address, this time at 5 Ridley Road, Hackney.
The 1891 Census is revealing as it shows Elizabeth, his wife living at 5 Stockwell Street in Brixton with her 6 children, including Richard Jnr. She is described as an Eating House Keeper - Coffee. I can find no record of where her husband was at the time. But later in the year he is at the baptism of his daughter, Florence Maude that was held at St. Alphege Church, Greenwich. He is living at 29 Stockwell Street, and describes himself of Independent Means, rather than Greengrocer. In 1896 his fortunes have changed and he is now a Restaurant Keeper at 157 Stockwell Road. The 1901 Census shows Richard Mattingly, now aged 55 living with his wife Elizabeth and their daughter Florence, aged 10 and Violet, aged 7 at 1 Mansion House Street in Kennington. His occupation on the form is that of a Greengrocer. Finally in 1907 when his daughter, Caroline Emily marries Ernest Hampton, an Engine Driver, he describes himself as a Farmer, when the wedding takes place at St. Paul’s Church in Brixton. The 1911 Census supplies much more information than previous ones, with each form filled in by the owner. Richard Mattingly Snr. aged 65 is shown living at Beech Croft, Medstead, Alton in Hampshire with his two daughters Ellen (aged 24) and Violet (aged 17). He describes himself as farmer who has been married for 42 years with 9 living children. It is revealing that again his wife is not resident with him at the time. He died in 1927, aged 82 in Wandsworth.
My Grandfather also christened Richard Edward Mattingly after his father in 1878 started his life at 229 Ebury Street, Pimlico, London. It was then a Greengrocers, but is now “Tomaz Starzewski” Furniture Shop in a street of upmarket shops and restaurants. He was one of nine children born to Richard and Elizabeth Mattingly. In 1901 the census shows him aged 22 and his brother George, aged 25 as Shop Assistants visiting their friend, Robert Russell, a Coffee House Manager at 64 Ham Park Road in Kennington. It is interesting as an earlier census shows his mother as a Coffee House Keeper, but I am at present unable to find the connection. The next census for 1911 describes him as a Potman (a worker in an inn or public house who serves customers and does various chores), aged 30 working at the Landor Hotel in Stockwell. This is also the year when he marries Ethel Maud, the daughter of George Pearson. They are shown as living at 29 Willington Road Stockwell, on their certificate. Shortly afterwards they move to 59 Huntsmoor Road, East Hill in Wandsworth, where they were to live for many years. Their first son, Eric is born in 1912, Ethel in 1914 and Ellen (Helen) in 1915. Four years later Richard Edward is born, but has a short life and dies after just 5 years. During the First World War, Richard`s recruitment papers dated 30th June 1916 show that he had been working as a Fitters Mate in a Motor Works. He was enlisted in the East Surrey Regiment. On the 24th April of the following year he was discharged due to sickness. Richard and Ethel were to have three more children - Betty in 1920, Mary in 1924 and Edward Richard (my Father) in 1926. But tragically Ethel’s life was cut short when she died in 1931, aged just 44. Her death certificate describes her husband as a general labourer.
Unfortunately the census finish in 1911 and the only available information I have at present are the electoral rolls, which show those at an address who are able to vote. They show that after the death of his wife Richard moved with his family in 1933 to 19 Concanon Road Brixton and was to live there until the time of his death in 1965. His eldest son, Eric, was briefly married to Lilian and from 1936 until 1939 were living at 12 Dassett Road, Norwood. But after remarrying moved back with his father. The following years show the entries for the address.
In 1945 Edward , Mary, Richard Mattingly, Sophie Stephenson are shown as living at 19 Concanon Road.
In 1946 Edward, Elizabeth, Eric, Mary, Richard Mattingly, Betty & Stanley Sime are living at 19 Concanon Road
In 1948 Edward, Elizabeth, Eric, George, Richard Mattingly, Betty & Stanley Sime are living at 19 Concanon Rd.
In 1951 Elizabeth, Eric, Richard Mattingly, Frank, Hilda Chinnyah are living at 19 Concanon Road.
In 1953 Elizabeth, Eric, Richard Mattingly, Christine and Kathleen Brennan are living at 19 Concanon Road.
In 1958 Elizabeth, Eric, Richard Mattingly are living at 19 Concanon Road.
The death certificate for Richard Edward Mattingly, dated 1st February 1965 shows that he died at South Eastern Hospital; Stockwell aged 86 years and had been living at 19 Concanon Road, Lambeth. He was described as a Flats porter (retired). 

Below you will find a more detailed insight into the Mattingly family and their movement over the millenium from the village of Mattingley eventually to London by the 19th century.
The Hampshire Record Office at Winchester has some of the earliest documents relating to the Mattingly family. The name was open to misspelling as well as Mattingley, it appears as Mattyngle and Mattenley in these.The earliest document so far found is shown below.
1483 mortgage agreement
this document directly links the Mattingly family with the village of Mattingley. It is a mortgage agreement concerning a tenement and lands called "Rychars land" in Mattingley dated 24th March 1483. It is between (i)William Mattyngle to (ii) William Elysander, John at Hylle and Roger Cotell. (H.R.O. 19M61/153)
1566 will
We then jump a century to 1566 with the Will and Inventory of Harry Mattyngle of Mattingley, husbandman. This would denote that he was a free tenant farmer or small landowner and his status would be below that of a yeoman.
At present the earliest reference I have of the Hampshire branch is at the end of the 17th century, although there are many for Berkshire where the family seem to have prospered.There is an Apprenticeship Indenture for 1692 in the record office for a William Woodison to Thomas Mattingley, of Stratfield Saye who is described as husbandman and yeoman. This village is just 5 miles from Mattingley, which shows how little the family had progressed after seven centuries.
This Will is a rare survival and may well be that for the earliest direct descendant for my family, but it is difficult with so few records to connect him, though the fact both his and his eldest son are called Richard is common though the generations. Tadley is less than 10 miles west from the village of Mattingley and very near Wootton St. Lawrence and Baughurst where the family are shown to exist. He is married to Mary and they have 4 children - Richard, Henry, Elizabeth and Mary, who he refers to as being under 21 years of age at the time. We are fortunate that his inventory also exists (H.R.O 1695P/44) and is very detailed as can be seen below:
The list is very descriptive valuing all his worldly possessions both in his house and on his farm. He is no doubt renting his farm that he refers to as being over 120 acres. His wife Mary signs the document, but he places a mark instead of a signature. Apart from this wonderful Will, I know nothing more about this gentleman, as the parish records are sparse . His son may be easier as there is a Settlement Certificate for Richard Mattenly and his wife and family who are moving from Baughurst to nearby Kingsclere in 1710, which may well be the same person referred to in the above Will.

I have studied all the Parish Registers for Hampshire and slowly built up a list of all relevant Mattingly’s and it is surprising how small it is. There are other avenues to study such as the Hearth Tax returns for 1664, but none appear in their listings. I have checked Poor Rates, Church Rates and Land Taxes, but little has turned up at present. There does not seem to be a link between the references until suddenly I came across the village of Wootton St. Lawrence, again about 10 miles from Mattingley whose appearance is very similar. This village it would seem was where the family were to prosper by the beginning of the 18th century and there is a preponderance of information in their Parish Records from which I have been able to build up a family tree and link it with mine. After visiting the village recently I was surprised how little there was to see. Just an attractive church with cottages and farms grouped around it. It would have been different in the past as there was a large estate known as Manydown Manor that had been owned by the Wither family for many centuries. The large house that once stood there, which was demolished in 1965, will always be famous because of its literary connection, as it was here that Harris Bigg-Wither`s proposal to Jane Austen was turned down. The Map below gives an indication of how my branch of the Mattingly family migrated from the village named after them to Eling over nearly a thousand years. For the village of Mattingley is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 and no doubt existed in the Anglo-Saxon times prior to the Norman invasion. I have listed below every record I have been able to find of the family from Parish Records to be found mainly at the Hampshire Record Office in Winchester as well as Census’s and other records. From this I have built up a Family Tree almost up to date. It would seem that the Hampshire branch that split from the Berkshire side had not moved far from their original site at Mattingley by the beginning of the 18th century.

route of mattingly family

The Mattingly name is sometimes spelt with an "e", often in the same family. The earliest reference to my ancestors was when Richard Mattingly married Ann Winkworth in 1737. He may well be the same gentleman who appears in a Poll Book of 1734 showing that he was able to vote in that year at neighbouring Kingsclere. The Parish Records for this village show that he had at least 3 sons and a daughter. It is his second son Thomas Mattingly, who no doubt, being unable to inherit his father’s property moves to the larger town of Whitchurch where he marries Sarah before 1778, as this is the year his first child William is born. He goes on to father at least six more children. But it is Richard who is born in 1783 who is again relevant to my family. In 1808 he marries Mary Mildenhall, whose family have long lived in Whitchurch, but they move south to Stoneham, where their first child Richard is born in 1810.The couple only live in the village for 4 years, before moving to Eling. Their third child Henry is born in 1813, and it this gentleman who is the ancestor from which my family descends. Though born in Stoneham, he is to spend his life in Eling and father at least six children. It is my forebear, Richard Edward Mattingly, born in 1846,whose marriage to Elizabeth Herriott of Spitafields in London in 1868 and their move to the Capital that finally breaks the family link with Hampshire.

I have listed above all the references in the Parish Records for both Mattingly and Mattingley, as it so often misspelt in Hampshire. The families for this period appear to live in Wootton St. Lawrence, originally, then Whitchurch and briefly at North Stoneham. They Finally arrive in Eling about 1815,the year of the Battle of Waterloo, where members of the family remain until moving to London.

richard mattingly voting list 1704
Richard Mattingly appears on the list of men able to vote for the year 1734 in the village of Kingscleer, near Wootton St. Lawrence and Whitchurch. This is an early record for the family. He may well be the Richard Mattingly who marries Ann Winkworth of Wootton St. Lawrence, a nearby village to his.Their entry in the Parish register for April 11th, 1737 is shown below
Their first child Robert is born the following year in 1737 This is an entry for Richard in 1756, and shows both Richard and his wife Anna being parents.
There are many entries regarding this large family and its offspring in the Parish Registers. Perhaps the most interesting is when Robert, son of Richard and Ann Mattingly is shown marrying his Sarah Mattingly. I have not come across any further information as to their relationship, but find it difficult to believe that they were blood cousins considering how small the number of Mattinglys there was living at the time.
Richard was the youngest son of Richard and Anna Mattingly. He is shown here marrying Mary Wateridge, who were a prominent family in Wootton St.Lawrence

manydown house
To the west of the village of Wootton St Lawrence and surrounded by a park of 250 acres with 400 acres of plantations, is Manydown, a large irregular brick house which retained at least the original plan and traces of the original building: there are some pillars in the cellars which may be of the 14th century. It had been in the hands of the Withers family for centuries, and at one time they owned the neighbouring Tangier Park. They sold their estate in 1871 and the large house was demolished, although the impressive Tangier Park House survives. The village of Wootton St. Lawrence formed part of the Manor of Manydown, and the Mattingly family worked and rented their house from the Withers.
In 1798 Land Tax was centralised and for one year all the records were kept in London. They are now held by the Public Record Office at Kew. I was very exited to find both Robert (born 1738) and Richard Mattingly (1754-1830) mentioned as owning and renting property in the village of Wootton St. Lawrence in Hampshire. They were no doubt the sons of Richard Mattingly, my earliest descendant so far. The full list shows L.B. Withers Esq. whose family owned Manydwon, and were Lords of the Manor as by far the largest landowners, and may well have employed the Mattingly`s on their estate.
The earliest reference to Richard Mattingly (1783-1830) is in 1808 when he marries Mary Mildenhall at Whitchurch, Hampshire. The reference is from Hampshire Parish Registers Volume 8 Marriages published in 1906

His estate was some 15,000 acres in extent, one of the largest in Hampshire. It was here no doubt that the Mattingly`s worked and lived briefly before moving to Eling.

William Timson Esq, late of Moor Park, Surrey died aged 78 at Tatchbury Mount in 1818. Henry Thomas Timson died in 1849.
The mental deficiency colony was established before 1931 in Tatchbury Mount House which was an early 19th century country house. Three villas and a temporary hospital were built in 1939. A near by house, Loperwood Manor was acquired by 1941 and several buildings erected. The grounds also include an Iron Age Hill fort . The building which were formerly the stables and coach house to Loperwood House are listed. It would seem the original fine Georgian Mansion has been demolished in recent years.
