The word Chelsea originates from the Old English term for landing place on the river for chalk or limestone. Chelsea hosted the Synod of Chelsea in 787 AD. The first record of the Manor of Chelsea precedes the Domesday Book and records the fact that Thurstan, governor of the Kings Palace during the reign of Edward the Confessor, gave the land to the Abbot and Convent of Westminster. Abbot Gervace then assigned the manor to his mother, and it then passed into private ownership. By 1086 the Domesday Book records that Chelsea was in the hundred of Ossulstone in Middlesex, with Edward of Salisbury as tenant-in-chief.
The Tudor King Henry VIII acquired the manor of Chelsea from Lord Sandys in 1536; Chelsea Manor Street is still there to this day.
Two of King Henrys wives, Catherine Parr and Anne of Cleves, lived in the Manor House; Princess Elizabeth, who became Queen Elizabeth I also lived there. Thomas More lived very close by at Beaufort House until he was executed. In 1609 James I established a theological college, King Jamess College at Chelsey on the site of the future Chelsea Royal Hospital, which Charles II founded in 1682.
By 1694, Chelsea, which was always viewed as a popular location for the wealthy, and once described as a village of palaces, had a population of 3,000. Chelsea remained a rural location and served London as a market garden, a trade that continued until the 19th century development boom which caused the final absorption of the district into London proper. The street crossing that was known as Little Chelsea, Park Walk, linked Fulham Road to Kings Road and continued to the Thames and local ferry down Lovers Lane, which was renamed Milmans Street in the 18th century.
Kings Road, which is named after Charles II, recalls the Kings private road from St Jamess Palace to Fulham, which was maintained until the reign of George IV. One of the more important buildings in Kings Road, the former Chelsea Town Hall, popularly known as Chelsea Old Town hall and contains celebrated frescoes.
