The name was first recorded in 1320 as Elmsted, ‘the place where elm trees grow’, and the wood was Elmystediswood in 1392. This was part of the Bishop of Rochester’s estate and used to provide timber for shipbuilding.
The railway line from St Johns to Chislehurst was constructed in 1865 and Elmstead was the last station to open – in 1904. The ‘Woods’ addition to the name came four years later, presumably to attract day-trippers. Most of the vicinity was built up in the early 20th century as part of the expansion of Chislehurst.
