Claude Road, E10

Place Name

This was part of the Abraham Estate built during the Great House Estate development, which at one time is thought to have been Essex Hall. It which was partly built by JG Abraham of Stroud Green with the intention of renting out the properties. Clearly searching for inspiration it is said that the head of the land company developing the estate asked two juniors in the office for their first names and hence named Claude Road and Francis Road were named after them.
