FamLoc republishes out-of-print local history books and makes them available to a new generation of people.
We include two books which have chapters on Shooters Hill, and we hope to add more in the future. We are also interested in helping people publish their own Shooters Hill history books or memoirs.
For centuries Shooters Hill lay in the County of Kent, but with the growth of London, it is now in South-East London, within the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
It borders Plumstead and Eltham, and thus there is much information on Shooters Hill in both books listed below.

The Story of Royal Eltham, by R. R. C. Gregory

The Story of Royal ElthamFirst published in 1909, The Story of Royal Eltham is almost 600 pages of invaluable information for the local historian and family historian.
This FamLoc edition has been fully re-edited and reformatted to retain quality (beware of some “publishers” who merely photocopy the source material).
The Story of Royal Eltham is much more than about royalty; within can be found much information on churches, people of note, old buildings and landmarks, street names, charities, and much more.
Please note this is a properly republished edition, not a simple facsimile.

Records of the Woolwich District vol. II, by W. T. Vincent

This was originally published in 1890, and covers Abbey Wood, Bexley, Charlton, Eltham, Erith, Kidbrook, North Woolwich, Plumstead, Shooters Hill, Welling, and Wickham, as well as additional topics on Woolwich. It includes over 200 illustrations, plus 45 photographic portraits of local men of influence. The book includes many old maps, is rich in the main institutions of churches, schools, charities and industries, and also includes topography, and notable events, making it invaluable for the local historian, family historian, and others with connections to the area around Woolwich.
This FamLoc edition is a slight modification: there have been changes to format and punctuation. However, the grammar and prose has been faithfully retained, other than changes to a handful of typographical errors and the very few instances where clarity was required.
Please note this is a properly republished edition, not a simple facsimile.
