East Ham

East Ham was recorded as Hamme in 958 which signifies that this and West Ham comprised one single geographical location and not until 1206 was the name Eastham recorded. The name is derived from the Old English hamm, 'a water meadow' - refer¬ring to the low-lying riverside meadow near the bend of the Thames. (See also West Ham.)

The station was opened as EAST HAM by the London, Tilbury & Southend Railway on 31 March 1858; first used by Underground trains on 2 June 1902.
