The area of land where Yalding is situated was originally a heavily-forested marsh. In the 9th century, Saxons began cutting down the trees in the area.

They found that the land was very fertile and with its excellent water supply from the River Beult, it was a good place to site a village. The Saxons called the village Ealding which meant the "land belonging to Ealda". Over a period of time the spelling of Ealding was changed to Yalding.

This part of Kent was taken over by the Normans in 1067. William the Conqueror gave Yalding and several other villages in Kent to Richard de Clare, one of his most important military commanders. In 1314 Gilbert de Clare, (the tenth Earl of Clare) was killed at the Battle of Bannockburn. Gilbert did not have any children and so his death brought an end to the male line of the Clare family. The family estates were now divided between Gilbert's three sisters, Eleanor, Margaret and Elizabeth.

Margaret, received Yalding and most of the other Clare estates in Kent. Her husband, Hugh de Audley, became Yalding's new Lord of the Manor.

Richard of Clare holds Ealding. Aethelred held it from King Edward. Richard holds two sulungs. Sixteen villagers, twelve smallholders and fifteen slaves. Six ploughs and 150 pigs. Two churches and two mills. Meadow, five acres. Value before 1066, £50; now £20, because the land has been spoiled by livestock.

                                          25+ Best Christmas Traditions That Will Get Your Family in the Holiday Spirit

                                          Everyone will love these indoor and outdoor activities.

                                          There are so many ways to celebrate the holiday season that don't involve gift-giving. Think: putting up Christmas tree decorations with unique Christmas tree toppers, baking holiday cookies, and watching Hallmark Christmas movies, for starters. While all of these festive activities are surefire ways to get you and your family into the holiday spirit, there are other Christmas traditions that can often be overlooked. With all of the hustle and bustle around the most wonderful time of the year, you may forget about fun winter activities like sledding, crafting, and making ornaments.

                                          To help you remember the best Christmas traditions to try (and perhaps incorporate them into your December every year), we've rounded some of our favorites right here. Whether you choose to add one, a few, or all of these yuletide rituals to your Christmas bucket list, you can't beat the memories you'll be making with your family that you'll cherish for years to come. From small activities like listening to Christmas music to bigger ones, like picking out your Christmas tree, the following traditions will always be timeless. So while you're counting down to the big day (and incorporating some Christmas Eve traditions too!), start making memories with these classic Christmas traditions.

                                          Every year, have the family either buy a new ornament or DIY one of these easy to make Christmas ornament crafts. If you opt for buying new, look for a place like The Attic in Franklin, TN, that has a variety of ornaments that can reflect special milestones in each family member&rsquos life, or purchase an ornament as a souvenir to mark a special family trip you took that year.

                                          No matter how many days you have until Christmas, this is a fun way to get the kids excited about December 25 (hint: the more days you have until Christmas, the more fun this project will be.) Look at your calendar and count how many days are left until Christmas so you know how many rectangular strips/links your chain will need. Then, select your colors and prepare the paper strips. The kids can be as creative as they want to be and add pom-poms, stickers, and drawings to each link. Once the links are decorated, staple them together in a pattern. Then everyday ask the kids to take off a link until you finally reach Christmas day!

                                          The jury is still out on the true origins of this tradition. Most would say it started in Germany however some would beg to differ. No matter how this peculiar tradition of the Christmas Pickle came about, we care more about where the ornament is hidden now&mdashand being the first to find it. The night before Christmas an ornament shaped like a pickle is hung in the tree secretly. And on Christmas morning, the first to find it will get a special gift or surprise.

                                          While packaged hot chocolate gets the job done, there's nothing quite like a steaming mug of homemade hot chocolate. Forget the (sometimes watery) hot chocolate that comes from a dry mix and swap it for a cup of thick, rich chocolate like one of these hot chocolate recipes.

                                          While many people can't make it to New York City for the Rockefeller Center tree lighting, most towns and cities around the country host an annual lighting ceremony. This outdoor activity often has games for kids as well as festive music to get the whole town in the holiday spirit.

                                          Donating toys to kids in need is a great way to give back to your community and spread some cheer this holiday season. Check with your local library, community organizations, or see if your kid's school is hosting a toy drive to find out how you can get involved.

                                          Ice skating outdoors is a great way to make the most of Christmastime activities, especially with so many outdoor rinks opening up for the season. If you can't find a rink nearby, check out a local pond and glide across when it freezes over.

                                          During the month of December, there are always Christmas markets and Christmas craft fairs springing up. Attending one of these every year is a fun way of getting into the holiday spirit by sipping on some mulled wine or hot chocolate while browsing Christmas crafts and trinkets. You may see some of these beloved markets shifting to virtual shopping experiences in 2020 (shopping in our pajamas&mdashwe're here for that!).

                                          Christmas is not only the most wonderful time of the year, but it's also the most colorful, due to all of the massive Christmas light displays in the neighborhood. Take advantage of that by driving around and looking at the beautifully lit-up houses or drive-through attractions with your family.

                                          If you can't wait until Christmas to open gifts, lots of families will take part in a Secret Santa Christmas presents exchange too. Just throw everyone's name in a hat and have each person pick a recipient to give a silly, cheap Christmas gift to. Remember: No switching allowed!

                                          Not all traditions have to date years back. The Elf on the Shelf is a fairly recent addition to many households across the country. The Elf keeps track of your children's behavior, and reports back to Santa if they're being naughty or nice&mdashall while being caught in a new room or in one of these funny Elf on the Shelf ideas for poses every day. (You can even buy them Elf on the Shelf clothes too!)

                                          It truly isn't Christmas in your home until you've picked out your tree. Sure, putting it up and decorating it is important (and seriously fun to do), but there's nothing better than piling the whole family in the car to pick out your tree at the local Christmas tree farm, especially if involves chopping it down yourself. Teamwork always makes for a pretty Christmas tree!

                                          There's a reason this tradition has been around for centuries: Gingerbread houses are so much fun to decorate. You can buy your own kit or start from scratch, but either way, you and your kids will enjoy being allowed to play with their food.

                                          The very first Advent calendar was produced by Gerhard Lang way back in the early 1900s, according to Mental Floss, and it's been a holiday staple ever since. If you don't already own one, or if you've never used one before, try DIYing your own this year and turning it into a memorable Christmas activity. Your kids will have fun creating their own calendar&mdashand of course, receiving a treat each day of December!

                                          You don't have to own a record player to listen to all the holiday hits from Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin. The best part about this activity is everyone will know the words to the music&mdasheven your kids&mdashso all can join in and sing along.

                                          There's nothing more delicious than a fresh batch of Christmas cookies. Reach out to your neighbors to see if they want to participate. Set a date for the exchange&mdashsocially distanced of course. Then, get baking! For your kids, whip up some sugar cookies that will be super fun to decorate. Have each participant set a box outside their front door for neighbors to drop off their goodies. Here's to hoping next year's exchange is back to your face-to-face gathering!

                                          Christmas has become so commercial, it's easy to forget the real reason for the season. This year, try DIYing almost everything. Start with the festive decor, then some DIY Christmas ornaments. Next up are the Christmas cards, and of course, a welcoming DIY wreath! You could even give DIY Christmas presents for some truly thoughtful gifts. Everything you make will be extra special (and you'll save some money in the process).

                                          Take a weekend to watch some of the best Christmas movies of all time. Some of our favorites are: It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, Holiday Inn, and A Christmas Carole. We also suggest Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman, of course!

                                          Our grandparents didn't go into debt over the holidays they had a budget and stuck to it out of sheer necessity. "Spending with cash makes it more real. When it's gone, it's gone," says Elizabeth Revenko, a certified financial planning professional with Mosaic Financial Partners in San Francisco. "It also gives you a moment to stop and think about what you're buying, which makes spending more focused." If you shop online, use a prepaid card to stay within your limits (or make a promise to yourself not to go over your budget no matter what!).

                                          Dust off the old recipe books or cards and try your hand at Bubbie's latkes, Bubka's potica, or Gammie's famous 7-Up cake. Your efforts don't have to be perfect, but this simple act pays homage to your loved ones, especially those who are now gone. If you don't have a recipe that's been handed down through the family, check out our favorite easy Christmas desserts and Christmas candy to find one that seems close to what you remember as a kid.

                                          Even in the age of social media and instant updates, real honest-to-goodness cards are a way to reconnect with family and friends far and near. "It's still an American custom that's special," says Lizzie Post, cohost of the Awesome Etiquette podcast. "It's the one time a year we send and receive good wishes in the mail. Nothing else compares." Photo cards, postcards, or Year in Review letters are all fine just keep them positive and factual without bragging.

                                          Grandma used what she had to deck the halls. "Look around your yard and house to find natural elements to dress up your home," says Rakes. "Many natural items are prettier anyhow, and they're fresh and free." Collect pine cones and make a wreath, or arrange in glass apothecary jars. Cut greenery and tuck into simple white pitchers. String cranberries and popcorn for the tree. Dress up branches with glitter paint, then place in vases or use as Christmas mantel decorations.

                                          "That's what we'll remember years from now, not what you gave or received as gifts," says Rakes. Bake cookies with your kids. Plan night of family Christmas games. Attend services at a house of worship. Go caroling. Drive around to look at Christmas lights. Make ornaments. The point is to interact and be present in the moment with your family and friends, not with your smartphone or tablet.

                                          Our grandparents used their talents to create gifts. "But you don't have to be crafty," says Rakes. "Homemade goodies such as cookies and breads are always welcome, but you can make plenty of other easy gifts." Layer your favorite cookie recipe ingredients in a Mason jar, and attach baking instructions. Package homemade seasoning chili or taco mixes, or make your own vanilla extract. Download a Christmas printable inspirational quote and frame it. Put together a themed Christmas gift basket such as movie night.

                                          "When you look at old photos of our parents and grandparents, you see that everyone is dressed nicely at big holiday gatherings," says Post. Sure, you want to be comfy in your PJs on Christmas morning. But kids&mdashand actually, most adults&mdashdon't have that many dress-up events to attend these days. "Everything is super-casual. But sometimes it's okay to make your gathering a dress-up occasion so that it feels special and different," says Post.

                                          Your grandma would tell you that nice manners still matter. Sit down and write a real thank-you note this holiday season, whether you're thanking someone for a lovely party or a thoughtful gift. "They're always appropriate and relevant," says Post. "And handwritten reigns supreme."

                                          Part of the joy of the season is reminiscing about what makes your family unique. Ask your parents and grandparents about their holiday customs growing up or what they received as gifts when they were kids. Celebrate what makes you family, especially the silly or quirky traditions. "We have a mouse head ornament that has a long history in our family," says Revenko. "Sharing stories, traditions, and values defines your family and is a great gift to each other that doesn't cost a cent."

                                          Our grandparents shared what they had with neighbors when times were tough. And this year shouldn't be any different. Think about what matters to you and your family and share what you can to reflect your beliefs, says Revenko. Your gifts don't necessarily have to be monetary. Collect coats for homeless shelters. Help an elderly neighbor put up her tree. Send care packages to military members who are deployed away from home this year. Invite someone who's single and may not have family nearby to your own holiday dinner.
