Greenwich & neighbourhood


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


Greenwich is a market town, parliamentary borough and parish in the lathe of Sutton at Hone, and hundred of Blackheath, about 5 miles ESE from London, delightfully situated at the base and on the western declivity of a range of hills which forms the southern boundary of the rich vale through which flows the majestic Thames. The name of this place is derived from the Saxon Greena-wic, “green creek” or bay. In 1011, during the reign of Ethelred, the Danes made an irruption into to this part of Kent, and encamped on Blackheath, where they continued for three years, plundering and desolating this and the contiguous counties; the Danish fleet; on this occasion, had its permanent station at Greenwich and to this circumstance is ascribed its first mention in history. As a Royal residence in the past ages this place is prominently recorded; Edward I had an establishment here; Henry IV dates his will in 1408, from his manor in Greenwich; Humphrey Duke of Gloucester in 1433 embattled the manor house and the enclosed park, within which he erected a tower, on the spot where the Royal Observatory now stands; Edward IV enlarged and embellished his palace here; and Henry VII resided much at Greenwich and founded a convent here. This was also the birthplace of Henry VIII, who was baptised in the parish church; and here his marriage of Katherine of Arragon, in 1510, and with Anne of Cleaves, in 1540, were celebrated with great pomp. Edward VI kept the festival of Christmas 1502-03 in this place, where he died in the month of July following. The princesses Mary and Elizabeth were born here, and the latter, when Queen, made Greenwich her favourite summer residence; and Mary the daughter of James I, was baptized here with great solemnity in 1605. The assizes for the county were held here in the fourth and fifth years of the reign of Elizabeth; and in 1577 the town sent two burgesses to parliament; this privilege however was subsequently withheld until the passing of the reform bill, when the representative distinction was restored to the town; the sitting members are Matthias Wolverly ATTWOOD and Edward George BARNARD Esqrs. The town is within the jurisdiction of the county magistrates, some of which sit in petty session every Tuesday; and a court of requests is held on the same day, for the recovery of debts under £5; the jurisdiction of the latter court extends over several parishes in the county as well as in that of Surrey.


In describing the public edifices, the Hospital, that unrivalled monument of Christian benevolence and national gratitude and munificence is pre-eminently entitled to precedence. It is a noble stone building, founded by William and Mary in 1694 – seated on the bank of the Thames on an elevated terrace about eight hundred and sixty five feet in length towards the river; it consists of four distinct structures, distinguished by the names of King Charles’s, Queen Anne’s, King William’s and Queen Mary’s; the interval between the two most northern buildings (King Charles’s and Queen Anne’s), forms the grand square, which is upwards of two hundred and seventy feet in width. In one of these piles is a chapel which for neatness, elegance and real beauty, is not surpassed by any sanctuary in the kingdom; an eminent connoisseur (the Rev James DALLAWAY) thus speaks of it: “for truly classical design in which no ornament is applied but from antique example, the chapel of Greenwich Hospital, as restored by the Athenian Stuart, has no rival in England – I had almost said in Italy.” The painted hall, governor’s hall, the several offices &c. have been similarly enlogised. From its position immediately opposite to and on the margin of the Thames, the prospect from the Hospital is one of the most delightful character, commanding the expansive course of this far famed river, with vessels in continual motion on its ample bosom, and embracing an extensive line of the coast of Essex. To do justice to the beauty of this universally celebrated institution, in a work necessarily limited as this is, would be impossible – indeed it must be seen to be properly appreciated; and as an attempt at further description would be utterly futile, we must reluctantly decline the task. To the south of the Hospital is the Naval Asylum, or school for education, maintenance and clothing of children of seamen and marines; this is an extensive and truly liberal institution and comprises every requisite office upon a scale uniformly grand – including large school rooms, refectory, dormitory, an elegant chapel, infirmary &c., encompassed by pleasant grounds, lawns and gardens. There are charities of the greatest magnitude here; but though more limited in their operation, there are others of a highly beneficial nature. The seaman’s hospital is a floating ship (formerly the Dreadnought of 98 guns), and is for sick, lame and distressed seamen of all nations, supported by voluntary subscriptions. The charitable scholastic establishments are too numerous for minute detail; they comprise blue coat, green coat and grey coat, also national and parochial schools, some of them amply endowed; they are likewise for poor persons, Queen Elizabeth’s and Norfolk colleges and many almshouses; of the latter as well as the schools, several are supported by the wealthy and benevolent trading companies of London.


The chief support of Greenwich is derived from the number of gentry, and opulent London merchants and others whom its vicinity to the capital and local attractions induce to reside here. Although dependent on no particular trade or manufacture, it possesses however some of consequence, embracing that of floor-cloth belonging to Messrs COBBETT & JEEVES; the ingenious fancy comb manufactory of Messrs LEONHARDT & Co; and tanneries, roperies, steam flour mills, chymical works &c. It receives a considerable addition to its general prosperity from the great resort of visitors, especially in the summer season, and to the Fairs at Easter and Whitsuntide. Some idea may be formed of the great influx of persons to the town, on Whit Monday 1839, when we state, (from official returns), that 75,000 persons landed at and embarked from the pier, and that 35,000 were conveyed by the railway; what number arrived by the coaches, and many other appliances, it is impossible to state accurately; but it has been estimated that Greenwich was visited by upwards of two hundred thousand during the day and night. It is stated that five thousand persons paid to see the painted hall, in the Royal Hospital, on Monday, and nearly half that number on Sunday. Having mentioned the railway, we may here further observe, that this superb “line of way”, was opened from London Bridge to Deptford on the 14th December 1836 and throughout to Greenwich, on 24th December 1838; the line is lighted with gas and its appearance from the Old Kent Road, at night is truly brilliant.


There are two churches in the town, both handsome structures; the ancient parish church is that of Saint Alphage – St Mary’s (a chapel of ease), was erected by the Parliamentary commissioners; the benefice is a vicarage, in the archdeaconry and dioceses of Rochester, and in the patronage of the crown; the present incumbent is the Rev William Alfred SOMES. The baptists, independents, Wesleyan methodists, and Roman catholics have their respective places of worship. The park, which is contiguous to the town, is a delightful spot and fully justifies the celebrity its beauties have acquired for it; at that season of the year when nature displays all her loveliness, it is resorted to by almost every class of society. The Royal Observatory stands in the park, on a lofty site; here all astronomical observations are recorded, and from this point all English geographers and navigators reckon the degrees of longitude. The view from this eminence is grand and interesting, taking in the windings of the Thames, combined with a splendid and perfect perspective of the metropolis – the whole presenting as rich a picture as can well be imagined. The present ranger of the park is the Princess Sophia Matilda of Gloucester. Wednesday and Saturday are market days. In Easter and Whitsun weeks, the fairs or revels are kept up for three days and with the attractions of the park and the season of the year, draw together as before noticed, an immense concourse of holiday folk. The parish of Greenwich (including part of Blackheath), contained by the returns in 1831, a population of 24,553 inhabitants.
