A Little Bit About Notting Hill
The origin of the name “Notting Hill” is uncertain though an early version appears in the Patent Rolls of 1356 as Knottynghull, while an 1878 text, Old and New London, reports that the name derives from a manor in Kensington called “Knotting-Bernes,”, “Knutting-Barnes,” or “Nutting-barns”, and goes on to quote from a court record during Henry VIII’s reign that “the manor called Notingbarons, alias Kensington, in the parish of Paddington, was held of the Abbot of Westminster.” For years, it was thought to be a link with Canute, but it is now thought likely that the “Nott” section of the name is derived from the Saxon personal name Cnotta, with the “ing” part generally accepted as coming from the Saxon for a group or settlement of people.
The area remained rural until the westward expansion of London reached Bayswater in the early 19th century. The main landowner in Notting Hill was the Ladbroke family, and from the 1820s James Weller Ladbroke began to undertake the development of the Ladbroke Estate. Working with the architect and surveyor Thomas Allason, Ladbroke began to lay out streets and houses, with a view to turning the area into a fashionable suburb of the capital (although the development did not get seriously under way until the 1840s). Many of these streets bear the Ladbroke name, including Ladbroke Grove, the main north-south axis of the area, and Ladbroke Square, the largest private garden square in London.
Situated in postcodes W11, W10 and W2 Notting Hill is presently a largely gentrified area of Victorian townhouses and private gardens, which retains the dynamism of its working-class roots. Best known as host to the world’s second biggest carnival (after Rio’s Mardi Gras) and home to the famous Portobello Road markets, Notting Hill is also a serious destination for culture buffs and those on the hunt for a quintessential London experience.
Well renowned schools include Colville Primary School, Chepstow House School, Southbank International School, Wetherby Preparatory School, Southbank International School, David Game College, College Park School and Lansdowne College.
