The Pursgloves of Lambeth - [LAMB]

The Old English name of Lambehitha means place of lambs.  This was a port on the Thames recorded in 1062 as used for the import and export of lambs and sheep.

Lambeth Palace is located across the River from Westminster Palace.  In the 1750's, the opening of the major bridges at Westminster, Blackfriars and Vauxhall was accompanied with the draining of the surrounding marshland and Lambeth was developed along the new roadways.  By 1889, Lambeth had become part of the City of London.

The former church of St Mary is now the Lambeth Garden Museum.
