EARLY HISTORY OF DOCKLANDS
THE early inhabitants of this marshy fen-land were probably Bronze or Iron Age fisherfolk. From the remains of a substantial timber track uncovered in the early 1990s, archaeologists believe the area sustained a number of settlements. In 1997 the remains of a Bronze age settlement was discovered on the site of what is now the Royal Docks Community School at Custom House. Among the remains were pieces of pottery, arrowheads , flints a substantial wooden support post and parts of a yew tree.
Later the Romans had a burial ground nearby. And evidence suggests there could have been a Roman road and ferry point and perhaps a look-out post at Gallions Reach.
During medieval times the area was known as Hamme, a name meaning ‘flat, low-lying pasture’. For a while it belonged to Guthrum the Dane who won it in a battle in 878 against Alfred the Great. By the time of the Domesday Book (1086) Hamme consisted of three separate manors; the eastern one, later to become East Ham, held by Robert Gernon, and the western one, the nucleus of West Ham, held jointly by Gernon and Ranulf Peverel. Little Ilford was a separate manor, held by Joscelin Lorimer. There was also a small estate at North Woolwich owned by Westminster Abbey, though North Woolwich belonged to Kent from the Norman Conquest – a curious arrangement which survived until 1965.
Very little is known about the area pre-1700, although cattle were grazed on what had come to be known as the Plaistow Marshes. By 1800 there was just one house (Devil’s House owned by the Ismay French family) between Bow and Barking Creeks and only one road stretching from East Ham village to the river.
During the excavation of the Royal Victoria Dock hazel, oak and yew trees were found in a bog as well as British and Roman coins, a 27 foot canoe, a millstone, a Roman urn, a circular tin shield and many animal bones including those of a whale.
Sadly the boom came to a bitter end in the 1960s when the London Docks died and the industry moved to Tilbury and Felixstowe. All that was left was unemployment, still waters, rusting cranes and silence. So the London Docklands Development Corporation was created and the Island became an enterprise zone. The Docklands Light Railway opened in 1987 and the rest is history! Talking of history, which is what this Guide is all about after all, the Island History Trust based at Mudchute must be mentioned.
