Summary[edit | edit source]

Essenden Road first appears in an 1895 directory when, apparently, only one house had been erected. That was occupied by Mr V B Crake whose first wife was from Essenden, Hertfordshire which seems to explain the naming of the road.

A map dating from 1901 shows that part of the road adjoining Boscobel Road was called Medina Road, but that name does not appear in local directories. This road was renumbered .[1]
