History Of Wimbledon
Wimbledon has a fascinating history, over and above it being famous for the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament which attracts players from around the world each and every year. Originally Wimbledon sat on the top of a hill. This is where you will find “the Village” today.
A charter, which was signed by King Edgar the Peaceful back in 967 refers to the area as Wimbedounyng, which is an Anglo-Sazon word. It is believed that Wimbledon was also referred to as Wynmanns Hill, after a local landowner.
Wimbledon was part of the manor of Mortlake, based on the 1086 Domesday Book. The ownership of the area changed numerous times over the years, it was owned by the church up until 1398 when the Archbishop of Canterbury was exiled. The manor became crown property up until Henry VIII gave it to Thomas Cromwell, who was the Earl of Essex. Thomas Cromwell was executed in 1540 and the land was handed to Henry VIII's widow Catherine Parr. When she passed away in 1548 it was returned to the monarch.
The manor was then given to Cardinal Reginald Pole until his passing in 1558 and Elizabeth I took it giving it to Christopher Hatton, a politician. He sold it to Thomas Cecil, the Earl of Essex that same year. Wimbledon Palace was constructed just after 1588 with beautiful gardens and completed in Elizabethan style. Sadly the manor house was destroyed in the 1780's by a fire and replaced by Wimbledon Park House in 1801. During this time the land included the parkland surrounding the manor house along with Wimbledon Common.
In 1838 the railway opened by London and Southern Western Railway, bringing a station to the village, based at the bottom of the hill. The rail links expanded to Croydon in 1855 and Tooting in 1868. Later it expanded even further to add new tracks from Putney in 1899.
Population boomed in the nineteenth century. By 1851 there were just shy of two thousand seven hundred people living in the area and this continued to grow by sixty percent per decade until 1901. This resulted in numerous villas and terraced homes being built towards Putney.
Commercial developments also started to appear during this time with Ely's department store opening their doors in 1876. The first police station opened in 1870 followed by a library in 1887. St Mary's Church was also rebuilt in 1848, along with the construction of Christ Church in 1859 followed by Trinity Church in 1862. The travel links to Wimbledon attracted professionals and families to the area.
It was -the 1870's that the land near the railway line started to hold the Croquet Club annual championships. Interest started to drop and a new sport began to spread, this was lawn tennis. The Club set aside one of their lawns to accommodate the growing interest in tennis and held it's first Lawn Tennis Championship in 1877. The club could no longer cope with the sheer volume of spectators for lawn tennis by 1922 and they had to move to grounds close to Wimbledon Park, it was called the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. King George V opened the new courts. Today the grounds are used as sports grounds for Wimbledon High School
Wimbledon became a very affluent area and new roads were built close to Ridgy Place to accommodate the growing population. Wimbledon homes along with other parts of London were damaged and this resulted in the earlier homes being demolished and subdivided. Some parts of Wimbledon Park had authority estates constructed to accommodate those who had lost their homes.
