A Little Bit About Islington
Islington was originally named by the Saxons Giseldone (1005), then Gislandune (1062). The name means ‘Gīsla’s hill’ from the Old English personal name Gīsla and dun ‘hill’, ‘down’. The name then later mutated to Isledon, which remained in use well into the 17th century when the modern form arose. In medieval times, Islington was just one of many small manors in the area, along with Bernersbury, Neweton Berewe or Hey-bury, and Canonesbury (Barnsbury, Highbury and Canonbury – names first recorded in the 13th and 14th centuries). “Islington” came to be applied as the name for the parish covering these villages, and was the name chosen for the Metropolitan Borough of Islington, on its formation in 1899. On the merger with Finsbury, to form the modern borough this name came to be applied to the whole borough.
