History

Toponymy
A settlement in the area named Ham is first recorded as ''Hamme'' in an Anglo-Saxon charter of 958 and then in the 1086 Domesday Book as ''Hame''. It is formed from Old English 'hamm' and means 'a dry area of land between rivers or marshland', referring the location of the settlement within boundaries formed by the rivers River Lea, River Thames and River Roding and their marshes.

Economic development
In 1859 East Ham railway station opened and, although in 1863 the area was still being described as a "scattered village" the availability of transport resulted in increasing urbanisation, especially from 1890 onwards.[http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=42740 'Becontree hundred: East Ham', A History of the County of Essex: Volume 6 (1973), pp. 1-8] accessed: 26 April 2007.
