The Pursgloves of Hammersmith - [HAMR]

Modern Hammersmith was established from 1660 when St Paul's church was built to serve an expanding London population.  Brick making and light  industry were replacing the rural agricultural economy and housing was being extensively developed in the 18th century.  There is a local bridge across the Thames and major routes running into and out of London.
