History of Bethnal Green

Bethnal Green is associated with a Tudor ballad, Bednall Greene's beggar daughter. This is a long poem that tells the story of Henry, son and heir of Simon de Montfort who was blinded in 1265 at the Battle of Eversham. Apparently he escaped the king by dressing as a beggar. He survived by begging and clearly saved his money. Later, he attended his daughter's wedding and gave a huge dowry to her betrothed. His true identity was revealed at the wedding. The ballad was very successful and can be found here (Copyright © for those wishing to read it. The blind beggar is seen in the Common Seal district of Bethnal Green and the Blind Beggar pub on Whitechapel Road, just across the border with Stepney, is said to be the place where he begged.

At the end of the 17th century, the owners of the houses around the Groene bought the land to prevent others from building on it. A trust was formed to maintain the area and the rent from its use was used to help the poor. One of the Green's main homes was Bethnal House, which was later rented out and became an asylum. This area is now home to Bethnal Green Library and Park before being called Barmy Park by older residents.

The citizens of Bethnal Green have always enjoyed gambling and between 1590 and 1780 bowling was very popular. However, their other play activities included more difficult pursuits including the whipping of a rooster on Mardi Gras of 1656, dog fighting, duck hunting for which the weavers bred a special little spaniel called the Splasher, and hunting to oxen. Apparently a subscription had been made to pay the herdsmen on their way to Smithfield Market for an ox that went mad with goads and peas in its ears and was led through the most populous part of the parish. In 1816 the rector of the church rescued two oxen who had taken refuge in the cemetery, but a certain Joseph Merceron, as a magistrate, refused to stop the practice, declaring that he was the first to chase in his youth. The main entertainment activities in 1861 were dog fighting, mouse competitions, and badger drawing, although badgers were few in the parish. The dog and cock fights in 1896 appear to have been a popular part of the bird fair.

Things to do in Bethnal Green

The Green has traditionally been the hub of the area. The main building on the Green, known locally as Kirby's Castle, was once frequented by the famous London diarist Samuel Pepys. At the beginning of the 18th century the house was transformed into an asylum and for the next two centuries it housed many inmates.

The park where the house was built, Bethnal Park, is still called "Barmy Park" by the locals today. The original house has now been demolished, but some of the other buildings are still standing. One of the newer buildings around the asylum dating from the late 1800s is now home to the Bethnal Green library.
