The data, compiled by Ratedpeople.com, said Ed’s estate is searched 80,400 times a year worldwide.  

Sheeranville is not without controversy with Ed having several legal disputes over his rights to expand and his neighbours’ rights to expand.

This year Ed’s neighbour,  Anthony Robinson, won a battle against the superstar who rejected Mr Robinson’s plans to extend his back garden. 

Anthony Robinson, who lives three houses along from the pop star’s estate, was given permission to make his back garden 160 feet bigger despite Ed Sheeran’s objections.

Mr Robinson already owned the field behind his four bedroom home worth 

£550,000 in the village of Dennington, Suffolk, and wanted to incorporate some of it into his private garden. 

But Sheeran, worth £160 million, who had undertaken his own vast building project just a few hundred feet away, did not want the space to be domesticated.

He claimed it would extend the village into the countryside in an unplanned and artificial way’.

Although the council objected to Mr Robinson’s proposal initially many neighbours wrote in to support him and his plans were eventually approved.    

Last year June the singer had to fight to be able to keep his 16ft pub sign he had hung outside a barn converted into a drinking den. 

Although he had been given planning permission for the pub in 2017 he had not been given permission for the sign which caused locals to question why it was there.

Sheeran was also told he could not swim in his wildlife pond after he was granted permission to build it under the condition that it was used to provide a natural habitat for frogs, newts and dragonflies.

The council visited his property and specifically forbade ‘recreational leisure such as swimming’. 

He was also forced to remove his outside sauna, in a caravan next to the pond, after neighbours complained.

Last year Sheeran was however granted planning permission to create a place of worship in his back garden which he has yet to build.        

The new building was described in the application as ‘novel and modern’, but designed not to conflict with the parish church of St Mary.
