Cardinal Road, HA4

PLACE NAME

Cardinal Thomas Wolsey (March 1473 – November 29, 1530), the English archbishop, statesman and a Cardinal of the Catholic Church. Under Henry VIII, as the king’s almoner, Wolsey became the controlling figure in virtually all matters of state. Though after failing to negotiate Henry’s annulment to Catherine of Aragon, Wolsey fell out of favour and was stripped of his titles. Laid out in the 1920s and 1930s during a period of rapid expansion in the area, this is one of a cluster of streets built by Davis Estates and named after prominent Tudors, a popular theme with developers at that time.
