Penge was once only a small town, which was recorded under the name Penceat in an Anglo-Saxon deed dating from 957. Historians believe the name of the town is derived from the Celtic word Penceat, which means edge of wood and refers to the fact that the surrounding area was once covered in a thick forest.
Penge had few residents before the arrival of the railways. A traveller passing through Penge would have seen the large green with a small inn on its boundary. Penge Green appears as Pensgreene on a map from 1607. The green was bounded to the north by Penge Lane, the west by Beckenham Road and the southeast by the Crooked Billet. On a modern map that is a very small area, but the modern day Penge Lane and Crooked Billet are not in their original locations, and Beckenham Road would have been no more than a cart track following the property line on the west side of Penge High Street. There was also an old footpath crossing the Green leading to Sydenham, that was known as Old Penge Lane.
The 1868 Ordnance Survey map shows the Old Crooked Billet located to the southeast of the current location. This earlier location was on the eastward side of Penge Green, which disappeared as a result of the Penge Enclosure Act, 1827 which enclosed the whole Green. This left the Crooked Billet with no frontage to Beckenham Road; hence, new premises were constructed on the present site in 1827, and subsequently replaced in 1840 with a three storey building. This was severely damaged by enemy action in the Second World War, and subsequently rebuilt.
The Crooked Billet is by far the oldest public house in Penge dating from around 1601, but some believe it to be much older. In modern times it is particularly well known for lending its name to a bus route terminus. From 1914, General Omnibus routes 109 and 609 operated, along different paths, between Bromley Market and the Crooked Billet. The 109 was renumbered 227 by London Transport, and continued to terminate at the Crooked Billet.
