Agdon Street, EC1V

Place name

This has undergone several name changes, having previously been Woods Close at the time of Rocque’s 1746 map and by the end of the 18thCentury until 1939, Northampton Street, after the landowners the Compton family, earls and later marquises of Northampton. The present name was apparently suggested by the Marquess of Northampton after a farm he owned called Agdon in Warwickshire.
