A Little Bit About Gunnersbury
The name “Gunnersbury” means “Manor house of a woman called Gunnhildr”, and is from an old Scandinavian personal name + Middle English -bury, manor or manor house. Gunylda, the niece of King Canute lived there until her banishment from England in 1044. The manor owned by the Bishop of London, was occupied by the Frowyk family in the 15th century.
Gunnersbury was acquired by Sir John Maynard, a lawyer and politician during the time of Cromwell. It was he who built Gunnersbury House, a Palladian mansion modelled on the Villa Badoer, and designed by John Webb, the pupil and son-in-law of Inigo Jones. A map of Ealing dated 1777, shows the house in the north-east corner of the park, facing a horseshoe-shaped lake.
In 1835, the merchant and financier Nathan Mayer Rothschild purchased the Large Mansion and park shortly before he died. In 1925, following the death of Nathan’s grandson Leopold de Rothschild, Leopold’s wife, Maria and son Lionel, sold the 200 acre Gunnersbury estate for £130,000. The large mansion is now Gunnersbury Park Museum (opening in 1929) and is a showcase for local history and archaeology, costume and fine art. Some memorabilia of the Rothschilds remain, including a number of their horse-drawn coaches.
