A little about Twickenham

Excavations have exposed settlements in the area of Twickenham dating from the Early Neolithic, possibly Mesolithic periods. Occupation seems to have continued through the Bronze Age, the Iron Age and the Roman occupation. The area was first mentioned in an 8th century charter to cede the area to Waldhere, Bishop of London. The charter, dated 13 June 704, is signed with 12 crosses. The signatories included Swaefred of Essex, Cenred of Mercia and Earl Paeogthath.

During Norman times Twickenham was part of the Manor of Isleworth, which was itself part of the Hundred of Hounslow, Middlesex. The manor had belonged to the Earl of Mercia in the time of Edward the Confessor, but was granted to Walter de Saint-Valery by William I of England after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. The area was then farmed for several hundred years, while the river provided opportunities for fishing, boatbuilding and trade.

Bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death spread to Twickenham in 1665 and sixty seven deaths were recorded. It appears that Twickenham had a pest house in the 17th century, although the exact location is not known.

There was also a watch house in the middle of the town, with stocks, a pillory and a whipping post whose owner was charged to keep all Beggars and Vagabonds that should wander about the town in line a give correction to.

In 1633 construction began on York House. It was occupied by Edward Montagu, 2nd Earl of Manchester in 1656 and later by Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon.

Twickenham in the 18th and 19th centuries

In 1713 the nave of the ancient St Mary's Church collapsed, and the church was rebuilt in the Neo-classical style to designs by a local architect, John James.

In 1736, the well known pharmacist and quack doctor Joshua Ward set up the Great Vitriol Works to produce sulphuric acid, using a process discovered in the seventeenth century by Johann Glauber in which sulphur is burned together with saltpetre, otherwise known as potassium nitrate, in the presence of steam. The process generates an utterly foul smell, which caused objections from local residents.

Twickenham has the first commercial gunpowder factory

The area was also soon home to the world's first industrial production facility for gunpowder, on a site between Twickenham and Whitton on the banks of the River Crane. There were frequent explosions and loss of life. On 11 March 1758, one of two explosions was felt in Reading, Berkshire, and in April 1774 another explosion terrified people at church in Isleworth.

In 1772 three mills blew up, shattering glass and buildings in the neighbourhood. Horace Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford, wrote complaining to his friend and relative Henry Seymour Conway, then Lieutenant General of the Ordnance, that all the decorative painted glass had been blown out of his windows at Strawberry Hill.

The powder mills remained in operation until 1927 when they were closed. Much of the site is now occupied by Crane Park, in which the old Shot Tower, mill sluices and blast embankments can still be seen. Much of the area along the river next to the Shot Tower is now a beautiful and much visited nature reserve.

The 1818 Enclosure Award led to the development of 182 acres of land to the west of Twickenham town centre largely between the present day Staines and Hampton Roads, where new roads; Workhouse Road, Middle Road, 3rd, 2nd and 1st Common Roads were laid out. During the 18th and 19th centuries, a number of fine houses were built and Twickenham became a popular place of residence for people that were considered to be of fashion and distinction. Further development was stimulated by the opening of Twickenham station in 1848.

In 1898 some buildings on London Road, near the east end of King Street, were demolished, and a new road was built, in order to relieve congestion on the older Church Street. This new road was named York Street and opened on 1 March 1899.
