Rancliffe Road, E6

Place Name

The early 18thCentury property Rancliffe House stood on White Horse Lane, until the house and grounds were purchased in 1896 by the East Ham Urban District Authority as part of its policy to provide recreational land for the growing population. The house was part of the estate of local landowner Colonel Ynyr Henry Burges, Lord of the Manor who agreed the sale of the property including 17 acres of land for £8,500, to create Central Park. The house was demolished in 1908 to expand the park.
