Continuing in our ‘On the Street Where You Live talks series, Gavin Bowyer tells the fascinating story of East Dulwich’s Friern Manor Farm Estate from completion of its purchase in 1796 by Henry Jones, subsequent inheritance by his granddaughter, Mary Ann, her marriage to Captain William Cartwright and their sons, Fairfax and Aubrey, up to when the Estate was sold to the British Land Company in 1865.

Originally, the Estate stretched from Barry Road southwards as far as the historic boundary of Camberwell, including land now occupied by the Horniman Gardens. It was bounded to the west by Lordship Lane and to the east by Peckham Rye and Camberwell Cemetery. By the time of the sale, the southern boundary was Wood Lane, now Woodvale.

Gavin Bowyer is a retired geologist, a member of the Dulwich Society local history research group and has been a resident of East Dulwich since 1986, living within the area covered by the former Friern Manor Farm Estate.

It will complement the “On the Street where you live” series previously published in the Dulwich Society Journal.
