This a republication of Edward T. Clarke’s 1900 original.
This book has much information on Bermondsey Abbey, Bermondsey House, Queen Elizabeth, and men of influence, but it must be said it has relatively little modern or social history. That said, it is a valuable introduction to the history of Bermondsey.
For most of its history Bermondsey lay in the county of Surrey. In 1889 it became part of the expanding County of London. In 1900, along with Rotherhithe and a small part of Deptford, it formed part of the Metropolitan Borough of Bermondsey. In 1965 the borough became part of the London Borough of Southwark, although the district of Bermondsey still exists.
There have been the inevitable changes to format and punctuation, especially regarding the many quotations, but the grammar and prose has been faithfully retained, other than changes to one or two typographical errors and the very few instances where clarity was required.
