Pigots 1840 - Kent



If you value the information provided on this site, you can donate to Willen Hospice in memory of our daughter.


Is a town comprising the two parishes of St Nicholas and St Paul, principally in the hundred of Blackheath and lathe of Sutton-at-Hone; St Paul’s parish extending into the hundred of Brixton, county of Surrey. It is situated four miles east of London, on the banks of the river Thames, and derives its name from Depeford Stronde, applied to a deep ford on the Ravensbourne, of which the mouth forms the estuary now called Deptford Creek. The London and Greenwich railway was opened as far as this town on the 14th December 1836. Deptford is chiefly celebrated for its docks, which are most extensive, and in time of war are thronged with numerous officers, artificers, mechanics and labourers, giving the place, in its full tide of prosperity; an appearance of great naval and commercial importance. The Royal Dock, including various buildings, occupies a space of thirty acres; here the ships of the Royal Navy were formerly built and repaired and the Royal yachts are still generally laid up here. The yard contains slips for second and third rate ships, wet docks &c. &c. It was here that Peter the Great, Czar of Russia placed himself to acquire the practical knowledge of naval architecture; the house in which he resided was pulled down nearly a century ago, and the workhouse erected on the site. The manufactures of the town are those of anchors and engines for the merchant service, extensive potteries, and chymical and zinc works; there are beside, private yards for shipbuilding, roperies &c.; and upon the Ravensbourne are flour mills. The town is within the jurisdiction of the county magistrates, who sit daily, and hold a petty session for the division weekly on Saturday; a court of requests, for the recovery of debts not exceeding forty shillings, is held in conjunction with Greenwich, twelve commissioners from each parish being appointed for that purpose.


The places of worship are two parish churches and chapels for baptists, independents, Wesleyan methodists, unitarians and society of friends. The new church of St Paul in High street is a beautiful and commodious stone edifice, with an elegant superstructure; the east window, of stained glass is very handsome; the benefice is a rectory in the incumbency of the Rev Benjamin FTINCH. On the Green stands the ancient church of St Nicholas, a plain structure; the living is a vicarage; the present incumbent is the Rev. J DRAKE and both of the benefices are in the patronage of Mrs Mary DRAKE and Mrs Ann D T DRAKE. The charities comprise two free schools, one endowed for the education of thirty boys, the other for clothing and educating fifty boys and thirty girls partly supported by endowment, and assisted by contributions; the almshouses of the Trinity House corporation, a dispensary, an apprentice fund and some minor charities. A savings bank diffuses its benefits here; and the mechanics association, situate in High Street, has been some years established. An annual fair is held on Trinity Monday and the two following days; at this time the corporation of Trinity House come here, in pursuance of the injunction of their charter, to swear in their new master for the year ensuing. By the returns for 1831, the parishes of Saint Nicholas and Saint Paul) in Kent), contained a population 19,795 residents – exclusive of 1555 inhabitants in that part of the latter parish situated in the county of Surrey
