Beckley is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, when it was held by "Nigel the doctor" from Earl Roger of Shrewsbury. Before 1066 it was held by Holmger. The manor was known as Bichelei in 1086, and Beckele in 1294. The name means Beocca's or Bicca's clearing, and may be related to the Domesday manor of Becton found to the east of Barton on Sea. Today Beckley is still a small settlement clustered around Beckley Farm.
