Alperton Lane, HA0

Place Name

This was the road that used to lead from the village of Perivale to Aleprton. John Field in his book Place-Names of Greater London says the name could mean one of two things, either a farm or estate in Earlhbeorht’s land or, more specifically, Earlhbeorht’s farm (in other words a smaller area).  It was first mentioned as Alprinton in 1199 and Alpurton in the mid-14thCentury and Aperton alias Alperton in 1578. Earlhbeorht which means bright or white is where we get the modern names Robert, Albert and Gilbert.
