History and residents

The Norham Manor estate where Fyfield Road is located was originally owned by St John's College, Oxford. The name of the road was taken from Fyfield in Berkshire (now in Oxfordshire), where the college held the manor. Houses in the road were first leased by the college between 1878 and 1887. They were designed by Frederick Codd (Nos 1, 13, and 14), William Wilkinson (Nos 2–4), and Pike & Messenger (Nos 5–12). The houses are in the traditional North Oxford Victorian style of brick construction.

R. G. Collingwood (1889–1943), philosopher, historian, and Fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford, lived at 5 Fyfield Road with his wife Ethel. Grace Eleanor Hadow (1875–1940), author and Principal of St Anne's College, Oxford (1929–40), lived at 7 Fyfield Road in 1936. The historian Henry William Carless Davis CBE FBA (1874–1928) lived at 11 Fyfield Road with his wife and three children, one of whom, later another historian Ralph Henry Carless Davis (1918–1991), was born at the house on 7 October 1918. Rev. Arthur Acland, a tutor at Christ Church, Oxford, leased 13 Fyfield Road in 1878. Joan Gili (1907–1998), a Catalan antiquarian book-seller, publisher and translator, lived at 14 Fyfield Road with his family from 1945–69.
