Lewisham is a most respectable village and parish in the hundred of Blackheath and lathe of Sutton at Hone, six miles mad a half SE from London and about one from Greenwich, situate on the river Ravensbourne; the village extending about a mile along the Tonbridge road. It is inhabited by a great number of opulent merchants and tradesmen, who have selected this pleasant and healthful neighbourhood as a place of retirement from business. The inhabitants are supplied with water from a stream rising at the upper end of the village and flowing through it. The Surrey canal passes through the village and the Ravensbourne propels the machinery of several corn mills. The Earl of Dartmouth is lord of the manor, and holds by his steward, a manorial court once a year. The county magistrates hold a weekly session here every Monday and the jurisdiction of the court of requests at Greenwich extends over this parish, the vestry here contributing twelve commissioners.  The dedicated to St Mary, was rebuilt in 1774; it is an elegant structure, with a square tower at the western end and a portico, the latter much admired for its lightness and beauty; the benefice is a vicarage in the gift of the Earl of Dartmouth and incumbency of the Hon and Rev Henry Legge. There are Episcopal chapels at Sydenham & Blackheath, within the parish and places of worship for independents, Wesleyan Methodists and Unitarians. Many seminaries of the highest character are established in Lewisham and its vicinity.  Among its charities are a grammar school, founded by the Rev Abraham COLFE (see Blackheath); almshouses endowed by the same benevolent divine; and the union workhouse. The entire parish (including a portion of Blackheath and the hamlet of Sydenham), contained a population in 1831 of 9659 inhabitants.


Contiguous to Greenwich Park, and included in the parishes of Greenwich, Lewisham and Lee in the hundred of its name an same lathe as Greenwich, is the village of Blackheath; within the last century it was what its name implies, a black heath, with scarcely any habitations; this appearance has however, for along period, been completely changed, and it now presents some splendid edifices, and innumerable elegant villas and mansions; amongst these the Paragon, a range of superb residences, stands eminently conspicuous. At South Vale are convenient and well fitted up baths. A new church, the design and execution of which reflects much credit upon the architect, Mr G Smith, has within these few years been erected in Blackheath Park by T Cater esq; there are likewise two Episcopal chapels here, and a free grammar school for thirty one boys of Lewisham and the adjoining parishes and for the sons of clergymen of the hundred of Blackheath, founded in 1652 by the Rev Abraham Colfe, with seven exhibitions of £10 each, to either of the universities; there are also a British school and other smaller schools, efficiently supported by the respectable residents of this district; and a college called Morden college, founded and endowed in 1695 by Sir John Morden Bart., an eminent Turkey merchant. Blackheath is one of the polling stations at the election of members for West Kent, Fairs for cattle are held here on the 12th May and 11th October. The population is returned with several parishes in which Blackheath is situated.


Southend and Sydenham are two genteel little villages and hamlets in the parish of Lewisham, the latter celebrated for several medicinal springs of a cathartic quality said to be similar to that of the Epsom waters. Many respectable and opulent families inhabit both villages. In each place is a chapel of ease; and on the common of Sydenham a very handsome church has recently been erected, as likewise a schoolhouse, where poor children of the neighbourhood are instructed.


About one mile from Lewisham, in the same hundred and lathe, on the Eltham road, is the parish of Lee. The church dedicated to St Margaret has several handsome monuments; the living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the crown. There are two proprietary grammar schools, highly patronised and admirably conducted; and alms houses founded and endowed by Christopher Boon in 1683, now vested in the company of merchant tailors of London. The parish of Lee has the privilege of sending one boy to the grammar school established by the Rev Mr Colfe at Blackheath. The amount of population as returned in 1831, was 1108.
