Muckhatch Fm (6″) is Muckhacche 1510, Mukhatch 1515 Turner and near by must have been le Mukelond 1346Chertsey Reg , Mockelond 1548LRMB . It may be that the first element in these names is the common muck , 'manure, filth,' for though this word is of northern origin it had probably passed into general English use by the 14th century. Alternatively the name may contain the recorded OE personal name Muca .
