Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The South London Gas Light and Coke Company was founded in 1814 to serve Southwark, places in the East Half Hundred of Brixton, and Southwark Bridge. Incorporated by Act of Parliament, 1 and 2 Geo IV, cLI, 1821. Works etc. transferred to Phoenix Gas Light and Coke Company, 1824 becoming the United South London and Phoenix Gas Companies. In 1823 the South London approached the Court of the Chartered Company with a view to taking over their area south of the Thames. Agreement was reached in 1825 that the Phoenix should pay 5,000 for the mains and right to supply with the proviso that the Chartered could re-enter Surrey and buy back the mains at any time. Phoenix merged with the South Metropolitan Gas Light and Coke Company in 1880.
