Welcome to Lewisham Local History and Archives Centre site

Our archives go back hundreds of years and include information on Lewisham's famous residents and its fine architecture.

We can help if you want to find out about:

  • the history of the borough
  • the history of houses in the borough (when they were built, and who lived there)
  • the history of an area within the borough, for a school project or for general interest
  • your family history (ancestors in Lewisham, or general information)
  • local information on specific topics (for example, famous people who have lived in the borough).

This wiki is a repository for facts, research and information about the heritage of Lewisham.
