A Little Bit About Hampton
Hampton is centred on an old village on the north bank of the River Thames, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames in England. Historically it was in Middlesex. The population is about 18,000.
The name Hampton may come from the Anglo-Saxon words hamm meaning an enclosure in the bend of a river and ton meaning farmstead or settlement.
It adjoins Bushy Park and is west of Kingston upon Thames. The Hampton Heated Open Air Pool is one of the few such swimming pools remaining in Greater London. The riverside, on the reach above Molesey Lock, has many period buildings including Garrick’s House and Shakespeare’s Temple; also on the river is the Astoria Houseboat recording studio. Hampton Ferry provides access across the Thames to Molesey.
The area is featured briefly in two Charles Dickens novels. In Oliver Twist, Oliver and Sykes stop in a public house in Hampton on their way to the planned burglary in Chertsey. In Nicholas Nickleby, Sir Mulberry Hawk and Lord Frederick visit the ‘Hampton Races’, which refers to a racecourse at Moulsey Hurst. It is also briefly mentioned in The War of the Worlds. The Bell public house in Hampton is mentioned in T S Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Hampton is also mentioned in humorist Jerome K. Jerome’s Three Men in a Boat.
