In 1626-27 Thomas Downer paid £1 rent for Conie Acre. It is known to have adjoined old fields called Newlands and the Eighteen Acres, between the present Herne Hill Velodrome and Dulwich Village. The present Coney Acre, between Rosendale Road and Croxted Road, is part of the development which includes Walkerscroft Mead and Perifield.
