Sir Laurence Gomme’s original idea for a county history was realized by the publisher Herbert Arthur Doubleday, who not only gained Queen Victoria’s consent that the History should bear her name, but secured a special arrangement with the Public Record Office. The first volume (Hampshire I) appeared in 1900 and new volumes continue to be published, now much improved and updated, but remaining comprehensive, factual, reliable and unbiased reference works, based on original research.

This volume comprises detailed descriptions of the remaining parishes of the Becontree Hundred: East Ham, West Ham, Little Ilford, Leyton, Walthamstow, Wanstead and Woodford (Barking and Ilford and Dagenham were covered in Volume 5). Off-mint.
