Etymology

Ponders End is marked on the Ordnance Survey map of 1822. It was recorded in 1593 as ''Ponders ende'' meaning the "end or quarter of the parish associated with the Ponder family" from the Middle English ''ende''. John ''Ponder'' is mentioned in a document of 1373; the surname is believed to mean a "keeper of, or dweller by, a fish-pond or mill-pond".Mills, A, D, '' Oxford Dictionary of London Place Names'' (2004) p180 ISBN 0-19-860957-4 Retrieved 17 October 2008 Ponders End is a place in the London Borough of Enfield, North London located in an area generally known as the Lea Valley.

History

Through the 19th century the area became industrialised, due to its location in the Lea Valley corridor and the close proximity of the River Lee Navigation. The first major firm to arrive was Grout, Baylis & Co, who were established in Norwich in 1807 as crape manufacturers, the material being used for Mourning. They opened a dyeing and finishing plant in Ponders End two years later. Crape went out of fashion by late Victorian era times, and the factory closed in 1894. The buildings were taken over by the United Flexible Tubing Company.

In 1866 the London Jute Works Company established a factory on the Navigation in a desolate area known locally as ''Spike Island''. Many of the new employees came from Dundee, the traditional centre of the jute industry in Scotland. The jute works closed in 1882, to be replaced by the Ediswan factory. Over the years the factory was enlarged, eventually covering , and employing many people, notably girls, from the area. Ediswan produced electric lamps, and the factory was colloquially known as ''The Lamp''. They also manufactured appliances for the shipping and aviation industries, mechanical pianos and butter makers.

To the south of Ponder's End Lock a factory making white lead was built in 1893. Located further south of that factory, the Cortecine works produced floor-cloth and carpet backing. By 1906 over 2000 people were employed in local factories. Another major industry in the latter years of the 19th century was horticulture. Tomatoes and cucumbers were the principal produce but flowers and fruit were also grown in the many orchards and greenhouses to the north of the locality.Godfrey A (notes to) ''Old Ordnance Survey Maps: Ponders End 1895'' Alan Godfrey Maps, ISBN 1-84151-043-2 Retrieved 7 September 2009 During World War I, a huge munitions factory, the Ponders End Shell Works was built in Wharf Road. The factory building was sold after the war. Further factories were built in the 1930s alongside the newly built Great Cambridge Road.[http://www.enfield.gov.uk/downloads/file/2486/ponders_end Ponders End history] Retrieved 19 February 2011
