Thorburn Square and many of the streets south of Southwark Park Road were laid out and built between 1865 and 1875.

The new tenants would have been members of the working class in steady employment and a few had live-in servants.

Although Thorburn Square itself has been redeveloped, much of the surrounding area is largely intact.
