A misreading of Gawens. Like Feerings, this had been coppice woodland (24 acres), grubbed up during Edward Alleyn’s time, and lay on the east side of the present Alleyn Park, north of Dulwich Wood Park. The land took its name from an unidentified member of the Gaweyn family, mentioned in the Dulwich records numerous times between 1399 and 1468. The modern Garvens is a small development on the south side of the western end of Dulwich Wood Avenue, near Gipsy Hill.
