Here are the details of maps for Hampton Wick & Kingston on Thames:
London Sheet 140.2 Kingston & Hampton Wick 1894 - published 1997; intro by Tim Everson. ISBN.978-0-85054-932-4
London Sheet 140.4 Hampton Wick 1934 - published 2008; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-84784-167-4
We have published two versions of this map, covering the same area; please note however that, as usual with Middlesex maps in the 1930s, the area in Surrey is left blank.
The 1894 map, therefore, covers both the Middlesex and the Surrey sides of the river by Kingston Bridge.
On the Surrey side is the town centre of Kingston, as far east as Richmond Road and Fairfield West, and south to Orchard Road; it includes
the station, All Saints church, Clattern Place, Eden Street, Clarence Street, Horse Fair, brewery,
gasworks, but do note that this is only the town centre. Across the river is Hampton Wick, incl station, St John's
church and High Street. The map also extends north to cover a few streets in
South Teddington, including Wick Road, Upper Teddington Road, Normansfield. There is then a large expanse of Bushy Park, including Hawthorn Lodge.
On the reverse is a list of Private Residents for Hampton Wick, plus street directories for Church St, Market Place and Richmond Rd
The 1934 map covers the Middlesex side of the map, basically Hampton Wick and part of Bushy Park, and also includes a directory of Hampton Wick.
The introduction includes an explanation why the OS left Surrey areas blank at this time.
The map links up with
London Sheets 132 Teddington Lock to the north, and 139 Hampton to the west.
