History of Havering

The London Borough of Havering was created in 1965 by the combined former area of the Municipal Borough of Romford and Hornchurch Urban District which had been transferred to Greater London from Essex by the London Government Act 1963. In Scottish English, haver (from the Scots havers (oats)) means "to maunder; to talk foolishly; to chatter," as heard in the song "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by The Proclaimers. In British English elsewhere, haver means "to hem and haw; to be indecisive" . Throughout the 20th century, along with other London suburbs, Romford significantly expanded and increased in population, becoming a municipal borough in 1937. Romfordwas part of Essex until 1965, when it became part of Greater London.

There are seven town centres in Havering, offering quality shopping, restaurants and events during the year. As a shopping destination, Havering suits everyones different taste buds.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Havering

Yes I have been watching Havering develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential. I am also a serious amateur history buff and didn’t realise how ancient this part of London was back in the old days !  

More History...

The district dates back to the 11th century, when it was called Haueringas. Like any other settlement from the Middle Ages, it was named after the patriarch of the family, who led the local folks. Since it served as a residence of the monarchy, the area was transformed into the Royal Liberty of Havering in 1465. According to the charter of King Edward IV, that was a tax free zone in Essex, that gave more freedom and rights to its population.

The Royal Manor existed until 1828, when the Crown decided to sell the land. After the Liberty was ended, there were many demands and petitions about Havering becoming an independent borough of its own. That was finally achieved with the reformation of the London inner borders in 1965.

50% of Havering is Green Belt land. There are three country parks - Havering Country Park (popular with riders), Hornchurch Country Park (renowned for birdwatchers) and Bedfords Park home to many deer. The market at Romford is now over 750 years old and still attracts shoppers seeking a wide variety of goods.

Havering Country Park and Bedfords Park are excellent spots for a walk in the north, while Central Park, Eastbrookend Country Park, Harrow Lodge Park, the Chase and Beam Valley Country Park form an incredible stretch of open space further south.
