"CAMBERWELL, a parish in the eastern division of the hundred of Brixton, in the county of Surrey, 3 miles to the S. of St. Paul's, London. The original parish of Camberwell extended over an area of about 4,342 acres, including within its limits the pleasant suburban districts of Dulwich, Herne Hill, and Peckham, with a considerable extent of open country. This place is mentioned in Domesday Book as Cambrewell, and a church appears to have existed here before that survey was made."
