Facts about Homerton London E9

Homerton is a district in East London, in the London Borough of Hackney. Homerton borders Hackney Central to the west, Lower Clapton to the north, Hackney Wick and Leyton in the east and South Hackney to the south.

Origins

Archaeological excavations at Link Street exposed a building dating to the 11th or 12th century suggesting that Homerton existed before it’s first recording in 1343. The hamlet of Homerton (Humberton or Hummerton, named for the farm of a woman named Hunburh) developed for about a half-mile along the road on the north side of the now buried and lost Hackney Brook, within the vale formed by the brook. This led from the hamlet of Clopton, passing near the church of St Augustine at Hackney, then across the marshes and the crossing points of both the River Lea, and its tributary, Hackney Brook.

Medieval Homerton

In mediaeval times, Homerton, like much of Hackney, was predominantly rural and arable crops were grown, together with fruit and vegetables for the City of London markets. The majority of land was given over to pasture for sheep and cattle, and milk and cheese was also supplied to the City. Small kitchen gardens ran at the back of the houses along the road, with large fields behind. Domestic brewing was common (there are records of brewing performed at Sutton House and the Tan House). Many unsavoury activities (banned in the City) were also undertaken, such as tanning and fulling – the cleaning of felt cloth using urine.

Victorian era

A spur connecting the North London Railway at Dalston to Stratford, forming a part of the Eastern Counties and Thames Junction Railway, opened in 1847 for the carriage of coal. This resulted in the placing of Hackney Brook in a culvert and the loss of the extensive watercress fields to the south of Homerton High Street. Its later development as a passenger line led to the redevelopment in the 1880s of the mediaeval core of the village on Homerton High Streetwith Victorian dwellings and public houses, and speculative building on the lands either side of Homerton High Street. In 1868 Homerton Station opened.

By the 1860s, London fell prey to epidemics of fever. The Metropolitan Asylums Board founded the 200 bed Eastern Fever Hospital in September 1870 to prevent contagion. There were; six wards for typhus, two each for scarlet fever and enteric patients and two smaller wards reserved for ‘special cases’. The buildings were demolished in 1982 and the site became the core of the modern Homerton University Hospital. This replaced the old Hackney Hospital which (in turn) had been formed from the Hackney Union Workhouse. The Hackney Mental Health Trust now use the buildings.
