Etymology

The name is first recorded in 1680 and is believed to be taken from a local inn named ''The Nun's Head''. It is rumoured that this name refers to the beheading of a nun during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. However, there is no evidence to support this claim.Mills, Anthony David (2001).

History

Nunhead formed part of the large ancient parish of Camberwell in the Brixton (hundred) hundred of Surrey.[http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=43027 'Parishes: Camberwell', A History of the County of Surrey: Volume 4 (1912), pp. 24-36]. Date accessed: 3 July 2008. It has not formed an independent unit of civil administration, however as population grew a separate ''St Antholin, Nunhead'' ecclesiastical parish was created in 1878, with a church built in 1877. The church was later rebuilt in 1957 as ''St Antony's Church''.http://www.southwark.anglican.org/downloads/lostchurches/NUN02.pdf It was then Listed Grade II in 1972 but became surplus to requirements of the church and was declared redundant in 2001 and sold to its present owners.

The area then came within the area of responsibility of the Metropolitan Board of Works in 1855 and was transferred to the County of London in 1889. Having formed part of the Camberwell parish, it became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Camberwell in 1900.
