‘The Commoners’

The Wimbledon and Putney Commons have attracted a host of remarkable people over the last 500 years. Aristocrats, politicians, theologians, medics, activists, courtesans, bankers, property developers, even two French Dukes and a famous highwayman, not to mention visiting royalty, have contributed to the rich tapestry of the Commons’ past. This book profiles 31 ‘notable neighbours’ of the Commons, people who lived extraordinary lives around Wimbledon, Roehampton and Putney and helped shape the environment we enjoy today.
