Brentford Redevelopment: names of buildings and streets
The London Borough of Hounslow website has the following dated 12 March 2021:
London Buildings Acts (Amendment) Act 1939 – Part II
Naming and numbering of streets, buildings, etc.
Notice is hereby given that it is the intention of the Council of the
TO ASSIGN THE NEW NAME:
So where do these names come from?
The notification above does not say, but some can be found on this website: for example Lewis, Band, Hawley, Woodcock, Wallace, Tooke, Corson, Bradshaw, Bradbury, Kingham, Ronalds, Hazell and Pipers are some of the key people in Brentford's history. I guess 'Hugh' is from 'Hugh Ronalds', renowned nursery and seedman.
Tannery, Workhouse, Bank and Still are from buildings that once stood in the area that has been redeveloped.
Calville, Hawthornden, Rymer, Gravenstein, Margil and Hollandbury are varieties of apple grown by Hugh Ronalds.
The Ronalds family of Brentford.
