West Green, London Wikipedia
West Green developed as a small village in the Middle Ages with settlement first recorded in 1393. By the start of the seventeenth century the eight buildings that then stood in West Green formed the only hamlet in the central area of the manor of Tottenham. Although it had not grown by 1800, by 1840 it contained 18 houses. This made it bigger than Wood Green at that time. Development really took off during the period after the 1860s, particularly after the arrival of the Tottenham & Hampstead Junction Railway in 1878. Nineteenth century local author, Charlotte Riddell described the changes vividly in her 1874 book Above Suspicion:
By 1890 the urbanisation of the area was complete.
