Administrative/Biographical history:

The "Rosemary Branch" tavern, in Southampton Street, which stands at the junction of the Commercial Road, was a well-known metropolitan hostelry at the commencement of the century. The old house, which was pulled down many years ago, was a picturesque structure, with rustic surroundings. When the new house was erected it was described, in a print of the time, as an "establishment which has no suburban rival." The grounds surrounding it were most extensive, and horse-racing, cricketing, pigeon-shooting, and all kinds of out-door sports and pastimes were carried on within them. The grounds have now been almost entirely covered with houses.

From: 'Peckham and Dulwich', Old and New London: Volume 6 (1878), pp. 286-303.
