Lewisham Borough - A history

Price: £9.99

By Leland L. Duncan, M.V.O., F.S.A.

With chapters on the Geology of the district by W.H. Griffin and on the local authorities by A.W. Hiscox

The "History of the Borough of Lewisham," first published in 1908, covers the geographic area of what was then the Metropolitan Borough of Lewisham, formed in 1900, and includes Lewisham, Lee, Catford, Hither Green, Forest Hill, Bellingham, Rushey Green, Southend, Honor Oak, part of Blackheath, part of Brockley, and part of Sydenham. It is a history of those places, and not a history of the borough. The book covers the history from ancient times up to 1908. It is rich in the origins of street names and places, and includes much information on churches, topography, notable events, people of influence, and much more. It is invaluable for the local historian, family historian, and others with a connection to the places mentioned.

This is the 1973 edition.
