Stockwell was recorded as Stokewell in 1188 and can be interpreted as meaning - 'the stream with a footbridge consisting of a tree trunk', referring to a natural location, which was once nearby. Derived from Old English - stock (trunk) and wella (stream), Stockwell was a small rural village until the 1860s.

The station was opened as STOCKWELL on 18 December 1890.
