Wandsworth’s gunpowder mills, 1656-1713

This article traces the story of the important gunpowder mills at Wandsworth from their founding by Abel Richardson and James Lloyd in 1656 until their closure, probably in 1713, presenting new information drawn chiefly from documents of the Courts of Chancery and Exchequer. It demonstrates that there were two groups of mills of slightly different dates, corrects the existing list of proprietors, provides a new (earlier) date for the end of gunpowder manufacture and describes how and when the site was converted to other uses.
