The building was once occupied by John Blunt whose daughter Elizabeth was a teenaged mistress of Henry V111. In the 1530s, the Crown seized Bromley Hall, along with many other properties. After a period of remodelling, the building was then occupied by Viscount Rochford, the brother Anne Boleyn. The crown retained ownership of the Hall until the early 1600s, when it was purchased by Sir Arthur Ingram, Comptroller of the London Custom House.
Bromley Hall has since had many uses including a private residence, a calico printing works, a gunpowder factory, a missionary society headquarters and a maternity hospital. Fully restored, the Hall was now provide around 4,000 sq ft of serviced office space for small business in the Poplar area of Tower Hamlets.
