Walthamstow Area Guide

History of Walthamstow

Walthamstow comes from the word ‘Wilcumestowe’ ("The Place of Welcome"). It remained rural until the 19th century with a small village centre (This part is now called Walthamstow Village).

The railways in the late 19th century led to rapid suburbanisation.

William Morris was born and lived there for several years. His house is now a museum dedicated to his life and works.

Frederick Bremer built the first motor car in London between 1892 and 1894. In 1912 the "Motor" Magazine recognised Bremer’s Car as the ‘first British built petrol driven car’.

Today, Walthamstow remains a suburban town where properties are more affordable while being an easy commute to London thanks to its good transport links. Properties range from garden houses, flat conversions and ex-local authority.
