Block Management East Ham
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in East Ham .
History of East Ham
East Ham is situated in east London, in the borough of Newham. It is 8 miles from the centre of London. The first known name "Hamme" is within an Anglo-Saxon charter of 958: King Edgar (r. 959-975), granted the Manor of Ham, which was undivided at that time, to Ealdorman Athelstan. In 1037, a subsequent charter of land, identified with East Ham, indicated that the first division of the territory occurred between 958 and 1037.
The area name originates from Old English "hamm" and means "a dry area of land between rivers of marshland". This refers to the location of the settlement within boundaries formed by the rivers Lea, Thames and Roding, and their marshes. The earliest recorded use of the name East Ham, as distinct from Ham or West Ham, is in 1204, as "EstHam". The terms East and West Ham applied to ancient parishes in place, by the end of the 12th century.
Agriculture was prominent in East Ham in the 18th century. Farmers began to grow potatoes and other garden produce on a commercial scale, and small crafts and trades continued. In the mid 19th century, East Ham was still a village. However, it began to attract obnoxious trades. For example, in 1861, a factory in Romford Road made animal charcoal. In 1879-81, there were complaints raised about a horse slaughterer's factory at the top of Red Post Lane. Despite local peoples' dissatisfaction, this factory continued until 1886.
From the 1880s, intensive rebuilding replaced the old rural East Ham. However, there was an issue of poor quality housing that frequently broke building regulations. Slums remained an issue, although ironically, the 1890s was a period when East Ham was growing faster than any other town of its size in England. In recent years, although there has been a building regeneration project in the area, there remains a problem of poverty today.
In 1858, East Ham station was opened by the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. The line ran from Bow to Barking. In 1902, the first Underground District Railway started; and in 1936, the Metropolitan Line service, (now the Hammersmith & City Line), was introduced. The East Ham Underground station we know today, is on the District and Hammersmith & City Line.
