Eltham lies in south east London and was formerly part of Kent.

Until the late 19th century Eltham was a small village surrounded by farmland. Evidence from historic maps shows that the only dwellings in the area were isolated farmsteads and houses within the village itself, concentrated around the parish church – to the east and west along Eltham High Street and to the south at the beginning of Court Yard.

The only nearby structures within the area were the buildings and gardens associated with Eltham Palace and Eltham Lodge. These two sites were surrounded by large areas of agricultural land to the west and parkland and woodland to the east.

In the 1860s the railway arrived in Eltham. Eltham station (now Mottingham Station) was constructed in 1866 just to the south of the lake at the Tarn. The station was probably located so far south of the village centre due to the topography and to avoid crossing the parkland and woodland belonging to Eltham Lodge.

From the 1870s onwards large houses appeared along Court Road and the remaining southern section of Court Yard was infilled with inter and post-war dwellings. During the 1960s several suburban housing estates were built, two to the north of the Tarn open space, and one in the triangular area of land between Court Road and Court Yard.

Milson Road (1908 - 1954)
My grandparents and great grandparents and great great grandparents the Manley family lived at 33 Milson Road from 1908 to 1935. My grandad was born at 33 Milson Road. His parents George and Grace had all four of their chidren there. When his father Edward died his mother moved to 67 Milson in 1935 Road and lived there until 1954 (records found so far, it may be longer). Before that they lived in the Porten Road. I wonder if there is anyone that used to know them? My grandad was Charles ’Ted’ Manley, his parents were called George and Grace and George’s parents were called Edward and Bessie. George worked in a garage and Edward was a hairdresser.

Southwood Road, SE9
My great great grandfather lived in Time Villa, Southwood Rd around 1901. He owned several coffee houses in Whitechapel and in South London, including New Time Coffee House so either his house was named after the coffee house or vice versa.
