Tait Road, CR0

Place Name

Archibald Campbell Tait (December 21, 1811 – December 3, 1882) was a former Archbishop of Canterbury who had previously been headmaster of Rugby School. As a liberal he opposed moves to make the Church of England a more conservative and high church. He died on the first day of Advent in 1882 at Addington. Like many of the nearby roads, this one is named after a former Archbishop of Canterbury, who used Croydon Palace and later Addington Palace Mansion as a summer residence.
