Burkham House lies in the centre of the hamlet, around one mile south to Bentworth. The manor itself returns dated 1316, John Daleron held 'Brocham'. In 1590 Robert Hunt acquired the Bentworth Hall from Henry Lord Windsor, and this included the Burkham area. Later, Robert Magewick purchased Burkham for £160. and George Magewick (1647–1736) was described as the owner of Burkham Farm in 1684. In 1748 James Magewick Battin, presumably a descendant, held the manor, and he is given as the owner in a 1778 Survey of Hampshire.
