Ember

EMBER, with Weston, a hamlet, in the parish of Thames-Ditton, union of Kingston, Second division of the hundred of Elmbridge, W. division of Surrey; containing 1256 inhabitants. These are two manors of considerable antiquity, and both mentioned in Domesday book: Weston remained in the possession of the abbess of Barking till the reign of Henry VIII., who bought it when making the chase of Hampton Court. Ember Court is a substantial mansion, in grounds finely wooded, and watered by the river Mole: here are many valuable pictures.
