History

Goodmayes was largely undeveloped until the end of the 19th century, when large scale suburban development took place as London expanded. However, Goodmayes does appear on maps as early as the 1770s. Most of the area here and in neighbouring Seven Kings was built up between 1898 and 1910 by the developer A. C. Corbett who used new stations on the Great Eastern Railway to promote the new suburbs.[1] Goodmayes station was built in 1901.[2] Since then, little has changed in the area and the lines of Edwardian terraced housing continue to dominate the area with relatively few more recent additions.

Administratively, Goodmayes has always been a part of Ilford, and its political history has followed that of its parent from being part of a ward of Barking parish to the London Borough of Redbridge today.
