History[edit] Toponymy[edit] Tottenham
Tottenham
is believed to have been named after Tota, a farmer, whose hamlet was mentioned in the Domesday Book; hence Tota's hamlet became Tottenham. It was recorded in the Domesday Book
Domesday Book
as Toteham.[4] It is not related to Tottenham Court Road
Tottenham Court Road
in Central London, though the two names share a similar-sounding root.[5] Early history[edit]

Dorset Map of Tottenham
Tottenham
in 1619 (South shown at the top of the map)

There has been a settlement at Tottenham
Tottenham
for over a thousand years. It grew up along the old Roman road, Ermine Street (some of which is part of the present A10 road), and between High Cross and Tottenham
Tottenham
Hale, the present Monument Way. When the Domesday Book
Domesday Book
was compiled in 1086, about 70 families lived within the area of the manor, mostly labourers working for the Lord of the Manor. A humorous poem entitled the Tournament of Tottenham, written around 1400, describes a mock-battle between peasants vying for the reeve's daughter. In 1894, Tottenham
Tottenham
was made an urban district and on 27 September 1934 it became a municipal borough. As from 1 April 1965, the municipal borough formed part of the London
London
Borough of Haringey. The River Lea
River Lea
(or Lee) was the eastern boundary between the Municipal Boroughs of Tottenham
Tottenham
and Walthamstow. It is the ancient boundary between Middlesex
Middlesex
and Essex
Essex
and also formed the western boundary of the Viking controlled Danelaw. Today it is the boundary between the London
London
Boroughs of Haringey and Waltham Forest. A major tributary of the Lea, the River Moselle, also crosses the borough from west to east, and often caused serious flooding until it was mostly covered in the 19th century. From the Tudor period
Tudor period
onwards, Tottenham
Tottenham
became a popular recreation and leisure destination for wealthy Londoners. Henry VIII is known to have visited Bruce Castle
Bruce Castle
and also hunted in Tottenham
Tottenham
Wood. A rural Tottenham
Tottenham
also featured in Izaak Walton's book The Compleat Angler, published in 1653.[6] The area became noted for its large Quaker population[7] and its schools (including Rowland Hill's at Bruce Castle.[8]) Tottenham
Tottenham
remained a semi-rural and upper middle class area until the 1870s. Modern era[edit] In late 1870, the Great Eastern Railway
Great Eastern Railway
introduced special workman's trains and fares on its newly opened Enfield and Walthamstow
Walthamstow
branch lines. Tottenham's low-lying fields and market gardens were then rapidly transformed into cheap housing for the lower middle and working classes, who were able to commute cheaply to inner London. The workman's fare policy stimulated the relatively early development of the area into a London
London
suburb. An incident occurred on 23 January 1909, which was at the time known as the Tottenham
Tottenham
Outrage.[9] Two armed robbers of Russian extraction held up the wages clerk of a rubber works in Chesnut Road. They made their getaway via Tottenham Marshes
Tottenham Marshes
and fled across the Lea. On the opposite bank of the river they hijacked a Walthamstow
Walthamstow
Corporation tramcar, hotly pursued by the police on another tram. The hijacked tram was stopped but the robbers continued their flight on foot. After firing their weapons and killing two people, Ralph Joscelyne, aged 10, and PC William Tyler, they were eventually cornered by the police and shot themselves rather than be captured. Fourteen other people were wounded during the chase. The incident later became the subject of a silent film.[10] During the Second World War
Second World War
Tottenham
Tottenham
also became a target of the German air offensive against Britain. Bombs fell within the borough (Elmar Road) during the first air raid on London
London
on 24 August 1940. The borough also received V-1 (four incidents) and V-2
V-2
hits, the last of which occurred on 15 March 1945. Wartime shortages led to the creation of Tottenham
Tottenham
Pudding, a mixture of household waste food which was converted into feeding stuffs for pigs and poultry. The "pudding" was named by Queen Mary on a visit to Tottenham
Tottenham
Refuse Works. Production continued into the post-war period, its demise coinciding with the merging of the borough into the new London
London
Borough of Haringey.

Broadwater Farm, the scene of rioting in 1985

In 1985, the Broadwater Farm
Broadwater Farm
housing estate in Tottenham
Tottenham
was the scene of rioting between the police and local youths following the death of Cynthia Jarrett, a resident of Tottenham
Tottenham
but who lived about a mile from the estate who died of heart failure after four policemen burst into her home. The response of the members of the black community in Tottenham
Tottenham
and surrounding areas culminated in a riot beginning on Tottenham High Road
Tottenham High Road
and ending in the local Broadwater Farm
Broadwater Farm
Estate. One police officer, Keith Blakelock, was murdered; 58 policemen and 24 other people were injured in the fighting. Two of the policemen were injured by gunshots during the riot, the first time that firearms had been used in that type of confrontation. Tottenham
Tottenham
witnessed a high crime rate mostly related to drug dealers and gangs. In 1999, Tottenham
Tottenham
was identified as one of the yardies' strongholds in London, along with Stoke Newington, Harlesden, Lambeth and Brixton.[11] The Mecca Dance Hall was demolished in 2004 to make way for local housing. The 2011 England
England
riots were precipitated by the fatal shooting of Mark Duggan, a 29-year-old man in Tottenham, by officers of the Metropolitan Police Service
Metropolitan Police Service
on 4 August 2011.[12][13][14][15][clarification needed] Railways[edit]

Governance[edit] Parliament[edit] Tottenham
Tottenham
is covered by the parliamentary constituency of Tottenham. The constituency was created in 1885 when the first MP was Joseph Howard of the Conservative Party. The boundaries were redrawn in 1918, and Tottenham
Tottenham
was divided into two separate constituencies: Tottenham North and Tottenham
Tottenham
South. Since being reinstated in 1950, it has been predominantly represented by MPs from the Labour Party, with the exception of Alan Brown who defected to the Conservatives due to disagreement with the Labour Party's defence policy at the time. The current MP is David Lammy
David Lammy
who won a by-election in 2000 following the death of Bernie Grant. Local Government[edit] Tottenham
Tottenham
developed from a parish in Middlesex
Middlesex
into an Urban sanitary district in 1875, after a local board of health had been established in 1850, then divided in 1888 so that Wood Green
Wood Green
became a separate authority.[16] In 1894, Tottenham
Tottenham
was reconstituted first as an urban district then as a municipal borough in 1934, before being subsumed into the larger London Borough of Haringey
London Borough of Haringey
under the Local Government Act 1963. Today, Tottenham
Tottenham
is represented by nine local council wards: Seven Sisters, Harringay, St Ann's, Tottenham
Tottenham
Hale, Tottenham
Tottenham
Green, White Hart Lane, West Green, Northumberland Park and Bruce Grove. Councillors in eight of these wards represent the Labour Party, the ninth (Harringay) being represented by the Liberal Democrats. Geography[edit] Districts[edit] Tottenham
Tottenham
is a large area incorporating the N17 postcode area and part of N15. Because Tottenham
Tottenham
used to be a metropolitan borough in its own right until 1965, there are now differing views as to what constitutes the Tottenham
Tottenham
neighbourhood in the present day. Some areas listed below, such as St Ann's and West Green, which used to be in Tottenham borough are still thought of by some as being part of Tottenham. However, increasingly people regard these areas as neighbourhoods in their own right quite distinct from Tottenham. To deal with the confusion, locally people use the phrase " Tottenham
Tottenham
Proper". This includes chiefly those areas in the N17 postcode. North Tottenham[edit] This area stretches along Tottenham High Road
Tottenham High Road
from the Edmonton border in the north to Lordship Lane in the south: districts include Little Russia and Northumberland Park. Landmarks include White Hart Lane, home of Tottenham
Tottenham
Hotspur, White Hart Lane
White Hart Lane
station and Northumberland Park station. Central Tottenham[edit] Continuing along the high road, Central Tottenham
Tottenham
includes Bruce Grove, Tottenham Green and Tottenham Hale
Tottenham Hale
wards, as well as Tottenham Hale station and retail park, Tottenham Marshes
Tottenham Marshes
(part of the Lee Valley Regional Park) and Bruce Castle. South Tottenham[edit] Further along the A10 road until St Ann's Road, this area includes South Tottenham
South Tottenham
and Seven Sisters. For some it also encompasses some parts of the former Tottenham
Tottenham
borough which are now seen by many as distinct neighbourhoods in their own right. These include St Ann's neighbourhood and West Green. Transport links include Seven Sisters station and South Tottenham
South Tottenham
station. Landmarks include the Markfield Beam Engine and Downhills Park. West Tottenham[edit] To the west of the area are Broadwater Farm, the Tower Gardens Estate and Lordship Recreation Ground. Neighbouring areas[edit] North[edit] The northern limit of Tottenham
Tottenham
is north of Brantwood Road where Upper Edmonton begins. This is also the border between the London
London
Borough of Haringey and the London
London
Borough of Enfield. To the northwest is Palmers Green. East[edit] The eastern limit of Tottenham
Tottenham
is the River Lea, and across the river the neighbouring district is Walthamstow
Walthamstow
in the London
London
Borough of Waltham Forest South[edit] The southern limit of Tottenham
Tottenham
is the junction of St. Ann's Road with Tottenham
Tottenham
High Road, which after becomes Stamford Hill. The district of Stamford Hill
Stamford Hill
borders Tottenham, marking also the border of the London
London
Borough of Hackney. To the southwest, Tottenham
Tottenham
borders Manor House and Harringay, briefly meeting the London
London
Borough of Islington. West[edit] The neighbouring districts to the West are West Green, St Ann's, Harringay, Wood Green
Wood Green
and Noel Park. Demography and crime[edit] Ethnic composition[edit] Tottenham
Tottenham
has a multicultural population, with many ethnic groups inhabiting the area. It contains one of the largest and most significant populations of African-Caribbean people. These were among the earliest groups of immigrants to settle in the area, starting from the UK's Windrush era. Soon afterwards, West African communities – notably the many Ghanaian and Nigerians – began to move into the area. Between 1980 and the present day, there has been a slow immigration of Colombians, Congolese, Albanian, Kurdish, Turkish and Greek-Cypriot, Turkish, Somali, Irish, Portuguese, Polish, Vietnamese, Filipinos
Filipinos
and Zimbabweans populations.[citation needed] South Tottenham
Tottenham
is reported to be the most ethnically-diverse area in Europe, with up to 300 languages being spoken by its residents.[17] According to MP David Lammy, Tottenham
Tottenham
has the highest unemployment rate in London
London
and the eighth highest in the United Kingdom, and it has some of the highest poverty rates within the country.[18] There have also been major tensions between the African-Caribbean community and the police since (and before) the 1985 Broadwater Farm
Broadwater Farm
riot. The ethnic groups in Tottenham
Tottenham
as of the 2011 UK Census are as follows:

22.3% White British 27.7% Other White 10.7% Asian 26.7% Black 12.6% Other/Mixed

[19] Organised crime[edit] Tottenham
Tottenham
has been one of the main hotspots for gangs and gun crime in the United Kingdom
United Kingdom
during the past three decades. This followed the rise of gangs and drug wars throughout the area, notably those involving the Tottenham Mandem gang and various gangs from Hackney and all of the areas surrounding Tottenham, and the emergence of an organised crime ring known as the Turkish mafia was said to have controlled more than 90% of the UK's heroin market.[20] Riots[edit]

The Broadwater Farm
Broadwater Farm
riot occurred around the Broadwater Farm
Broadwater Farm
area on 6 October 1985 following the death of Cynthia Jarrett
Cynthia Jarrett
in a police search of her home. The tension between local black youths and the largely white Metropolitan Police
Metropolitan Police
had been high due to a combination of local issues and the aftermath of riots in Brixton
Brixton
which had occurred in the previous week. The riots resulted in the murder of a police officer.[21]

The former Bruce Grove
Bruce Grove
Post Office was destroyed during the 2011 Tottenham
Tottenham
riots

The 2011 Tottenham riots
2011 Tottenham riots
were a series of riots by protesters in Tottenham, London. Attacks were carried out on two police cars, a bus, a Post Office and several local shops from 8:00pm onwards on 6 August 2011. Riot police vans attended the scene of disturbances on Tottenham High Road. Later in the evening the riot spread, with an Aldi supermarket and a branch of Allied Carpets
Allied Carpets
also destroyed by fire, and widespread looting in nearby Wood Green
Wood Green
shopping centre and the retail park at Tottenham
Tottenham
Hale. Several flats above shops on Tottenham
Tottenham
High Road collapsed due to the fires. 26 shared ownership flats in the Union Point development above the Carpetright store – built in the landmark Cooperative department store building – were also completely destroyed by fire. The triggering event was when a group of over one hundred local Tottenham
Tottenham
residents set out to undertake a protest march against the killing of Mark Duggan, who was shot by police officers assigned to Operation Trident earlier in the week. The circumstances surrounding Duggan's death were not entirely clear at the time of the riot. On 17 August 2011, the Prince of Wales and his wife Duchess of Cornwall visited an emergency centre to meet victims of the riots.[22]

Landmarks[edit]

It was given the name 'Bruce Castle' during the seventeenth century by the 2nd Lord Coleraine, who was Lord of the Manor at the time. He named it after 'Robert the Bruce', whose family had been lords of the manor during the medieval period. The building was purchased by the Hill family, who turned it into a progressive school. Sir Rowland Hill was its first headmaster, and he was living there in 1840 when he, as Postmaster General, introduced the Uniform Penny Post.[25] Now a local history museum, Bruce Castle
