History of Newham

Every London Borough has nurtered mega pop artists – why are we telling you this I hear you ask….it’s because Ringley are based in Camden, the epicentre of all things music and Newham ain’t that far away !

Which pop band – hang on this isn’t a pop band but the one and only Dame Vera Lynn ! Even though not shown in the special map above Dame Vera surely had to usurp Linda Lewis…oh yes the ever and eternal and beloved Dame Vera hails from Newham !

An British singer and entertainer whose music was very popular during the Second World War, Dame Vera was widely known as the "Forces Sweetheart" and entertained at outdoor concerts for our fall guys and gals in Egypt, India and Burma during the second world war as part of Entertainments National Service Association. The lyrics were to do with so endearing during this awful time - "We'll Meet Again", “The White Cliffs of Dover" and "There'll Always Be an England" surely makes all the hairs on all our bodies stand on end !

Lynn spent much of her later years much to charity work associated with ex-troops, disabled children and cancer funds. She was recently named the Brit who best exemplified the spirit of the 20th century. Oh and by the way Newham was also the birth place of a very discrete and below the radar singer….Adele, though that just had to be mentioned !

History of Newham

Newham was formed on the 1st April 1965 under the London Government Act 1963, as a borough of the newly created Greater London. It covered the rough size of East Ham and the county borough of West Ham which were amalgamated by the same act. These were then in turn successors to the ancient civil and church parishes of East Ham and West Ham. 

Newham is located in the epicentre of east London and is one of the most diverse places in the country, with more than 200 languages spoken.

Newham was fortunate enough to be selected for the 2012 Olympics and encompasses most of the Olympic Park, as well as the Olympic Stadium. The borough is also home to London City Airport, The Siemens Crystal, Westfield Stratford City and the Excel Exhibition Centre.

Newham is on a fast track transformation with some of the largest regeneration schemes in the capital and indeed the country. This includes the revitalisation of the Royals Docks and the International Quarter in Stratford.

New developments in Newham

Newham is fast becoming London’s top property hots spots especially for swanky new apartments and regeneration schemes, some examples are :

Regeneration of Newham

Royal Docks E16

Ringley are consulting with regeneration planners for the Royal Docks and are true “Believers in the Borough”.

Silvertown Quays is another focus for Believers both among the developers and others who are seeking to make this new area good news for local people with significant challenges ahead.

Custom House and Canning Town redevelopments will cost around £3.8 billion! Christians from various flavours are hoping and working to challenge the reduction of social housing which is being renamed by ‘affordable homes’ that are so often not accessible to locals people.

Key Redevelopment Stories

The ‘Arc of Opportunity’ sweeps from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park down the River Lea to the Thames, then Eastwards throughout the Royal Docks to Gallions Reach and on into Barking. Below details an update of some of the regeneration stories in the borough.

The old Abbey site in E15

This is where the Riverine Centre, Masjid Ilyas operates and seeks to build what some have dubbed the mega mosque. Newham and London-wide plans by secular authorities instead seek a mix of homes, retail, employment and leisure.

Albert Dock, E6 

Opposite to other large swathes of brownfield land, this area is set aside for a business park for large Chinese and other Asian organisations looking to set up European HQs. The popular demographics and focus for this region will be quite different which will present it’s own challenges for outreach and engagement.

A short stretch from Turnpike Lane and Seven Sisters Stations, residents can get to central London in a mere 17 minutes. Vibrant Green Lanes with its buzzing restaurants and foodie Stoke Newington are a stone’s throw away.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Newham

Yes I have been watching Newham develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential and it’s not only about the Olympic legacy !!. I am also a serious amateur history buff and found out the area of the recently made borough was once occupied by a land area called 'Ham'. The name comes from the ye Old English word 'hamm' and translates to 'a dry area of land between rivers or marshland' references the location of the settlement within various boundaries formed by the rivers Lea, Thames and Roding and their respective marshes.

I believe the first known written use of the term 'Hamme' was in an Anglo-Saxon charter of 958, where King Edgar gifted the land to Ealdorman Athelstan. The territory wasn’t allocated at this time, but subsequent charter later on in 1037 refers to a transfer of land which has been linked with East Ham, intimated that the division of the territory occurred between 958 and 1037.

Unbelievably and at the time of the Domesday Book, two Manors called Hame were recorded.

The earliest recorded term West Ham, Westhamma was in 1186, and East Ham, Estham, is recorded in 1204. North Woolwich was removed from Ham at an even earlier date, in the cinders of the Norman Conquest would you believe.

 

More History.....

The creation of the modern borough in 1965 made way for the co-joining of West and East Ham, as well as with North Woolwich and Barking to the west of the River Roding (Little Ilford had become part of East Ham forming part of earlier local government reorganisations). This reorganisation really then re-established the former territory of Ham. All very interesting, London has ancient hstory, so glad it was documented at the time.
