Seer Green was first officially mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as “the Manor of Seer” when it was part of a large forest. There is a rumour that the village was once visited by a seer,
possibly Merlin, from the court of King Arthur. In Saxon times, the land on which Rawlings Farm now stands was owned by a Saxon Countess. Shortly after the Norman Conquests, King William granted the land to Bertram de Verdun who had come to England with the Conqueror and fought alongside him at the Battle of Hastings.
More recently, Rawlings Farm was sold by auction in 1917 when it was described as “a picturesque partly timbered old gabled residence in which the interior timbering forms a special feature”. During the Second World War, the house is said to have accommodated personnel of the Royal Air Force.
The current owners have enjoyed living at the property for almost forty years.
