Facts about West Ham
West Ham is a district in East London, located 6.1 mi east of Charing Cross in the west of the modern London Borough of Newham. The West Ham electoral ward covers part of the central area of that borough. The area, which lies immediately to the north of the River Thames and east of the River Lea, was originally a manor in the county of Essex, then an ancient parish, and ultimately a county borough.
It had become apparent that local government in the parish of West Ham was not adequate to meet the needs of the area which was divided between the parish vestry, highway board, and the Havering and Dagenham Commissioners of Sewers. Problems centered on the provision of adequate paving, water supply, fire fighting, and control of development. In 1853 a group of ratepayers initiated moves to improve local administration.
History of West Ham
The first known written use of the term, as ‘Hamme’, is in an Anglo-Saxon charter of 958, in which King Edgar granted the Manor of Ham, which was undivided at that time, to Ealdorman Athelstan. A subsequent charter of 1037 describes a transfer of land which has been identified with East Ham, indicating that the division of the territory occurred between 958 and 1037.
The place name derives from Old English ‘hamm’ and means ‘a dry area of land between rivers or marshland’, referring to the location of the settlement within boundaries formed by the rivers Lea, Thames and Roding and their marshes. North Woolwich seems likely to have been removed from Ham in the aftermath of the Norman Conquest.
