In the Domesday Book of 1086, Reigate is recorded as Cherchefelle and in the 12th century as Crichefeld and Crechesfeld. The name is thought to mean "open space by the hill or barrow". The name "Reigate" first appears in written sources in the 1190s. Similar forms are also recorded in the late medieval period, including Reigata in 1170, Regate in 1203, Raygate in 1235, Rigate in 1344 and Reighgate (1604). The name is thought to derive from the Old English rǣge meaning "roe deer" and the Middle English gate, which might indicate an enclosure gate through which deer were hunted. It has been suggested that the "rei" element may have evolved from the Middle English ray, meaning a marshland or to a stream, however this is considered unlikely as the Old English form of this word is ree rather than rey.[note 1] A "Thomas ate Chert" is recorded as living at Woodhatch in the early 14th century and the settlement is thought to have been named after his family.
