Online Auction Description

Great Britain, Scott's catalog # 733, Topical: Christmas, Town Cancel: Bromley, Kent. This stamp is without defects, and has no damage.

Bromley, County Kent, England, Great Britain
(located in what is now Greater London County, England)

Population: not known

Bromley is a large suburban district of south east London, England, and the administrative headquarters of the London Borough of Bromley. It was historically a market town, and prior to 1965 was in the county of Kent and formed the administrative centre of the Municipal Borough of Bromley. Its location on a coaching route and the opening of a railway station in 1858 were key to its development and the economic history of Bromley is underpinned by a shift from an agrarian village to commercial and retail hub. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Bromley significantly increased in population and has formed part of Greater London since 1965. It has developed into one of a handful of regionally significant commercial and retail districts outside central London. It is located 9.3 miles south east of Charing Cross and is one of the major metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan.

The history of Bromley is closely connected with the See of Rochester. In AD 862 Ethelbert, the King of Kent, granted land to form the Manor of Bromley. It was held by the Bishops of Rochester until 1845, when Coles Child, a wealthy local merchant and philanthropist, purchased Bromley Palace (now the hub of the Bromley Civic Centre) and became lord of the manor. The town was an important coaching stop on the way to Hastings from London, and the now defunct Royal Bell Hotel (just off Market Square) is referred to in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. It was a quiet rural village until the arrival of the railway in 1858 in Shortlands, which led to rapid growth, and outlying suburban districts such as Bickley (which later overflowed into Bromley Common) were developed to accommodate those wishing to live so conveniently close to London.

Sellers Note:
This cancel shows at the bottom "Kent", to mean County Kent. Since 1965 Bromley was a part of Greater London County. Despite the relatively recent incorporation into the London administrative area, Bromley remains a Kentish Market Town, having held its market charter since 1158. This cancelation device probably should not have been in use after 1965. This stamp tho issued for the 1974 Christmas season bears this rather puzzeling "County Kent" cancel.
