Chobham is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Surrey Heath in Surrey, England.The village has a small high street area, specialising in traditional trades and motor trades.During mediaeval times, Chobham remained part of the Chertsey Abbey estates.As across the whole hundred which he dominated, the power of the Abbot of Chertsey was considerable.However, some expansion in building and a modest amount of farming resulted from the presence of two lines of baronets: the Abdy baronets and Le Marchant baronets. John Cordrey, the last Abbot of Chertsey, surrendered the possessions of the Abbey to the crown in the reign of Henry VIII, and in July 1558, under Queen Mary I of England, the crown sold a parcel of land for £3,000 to Nicholas Heath, Archbishop of York and Lord Chancellor.The land was inclosed by a pale, whence it was called a park, and is marked as such in Norden and Speed's map of 1610.
The former archbishop continued, however, to reside when his nephew Thomas forfeited his new lands in 1588.
