Michael Road, E11

Place Name

Originally called Wellesley Road, after the principal name of the lords of Ruckholt and Wanstead manors, namely Pole-Tylney-Long-Wellesley. It was renamed Michael Road in 1949, supposedly after Sir Michael Hicks (Hickes) (October 21, 1543 – August 15, 1612), who was Lord of the Manor of Ruckholt in Elizabethan and early Jacobean times.
