Does anyone know the origins of Brodie Street in London SE 1 just off the Old Kent Road , or how i can find out more about why it was called Brodie Street.?

A book on street name origins was reviewed on this site only a few months ago -

I don't know if it includes Brodie Street - should be available from most London reference libraries, or perhaps our site editor still has the review copy?

Thanks very much for your information and i will have a look at the book first and then the London reference libraries,
all the best Ian.

The Southwark Local Studies Library would probably be able to provide an answer - email

Useful links, originally resulting from a Lang Rabbie post are:

(Victorian London A to Z), and:

(1827 map of London)

Both appear to cover Brodie St as it is now.

They're great links, but I have to confess to never having posted them, in fact I'd never visited that bit of the gendcos site.

Anyone else want to lay claim to the credit?

It was after you started (what ended up being called) the 'Bermondsey history - no longer in peril' thread that I found them by following links, so no not posted directly by you but found as a result of you.

They are interesting!

This website is also fascinating:

It's not specific to Southwark and Bermondsey, but contains many references to them.
