From Historical Hastings

Other Names
Former name(s)Medina Road
Named AfterEssenden, Hertfordshire

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 during 1949.[1]
