Tooting Beс

Tooting Beс. Tooting was recorded as Totinge in 675 and Totinge in the Domesday Book. From с. 1082 it comprised two manors - that of Upper Tooting and Tooting Bec, held in 1086 by the Abbey of St Mary of Beс in Normandy and Tooting Beс is so named. Tooting is derived from a personal name of the Saxon Tota and the Old English place name word ending ing, literally 'the people who lived at' - Tooting, therefore means - 'the home of Tota's people'. It is suggested that it should be also interpreted as 'people of the look-out place' but this is doubtful as there is no hill in Tooting.

The station was opened as TRINITY ROAD on 13 September 1926; re-named TOOTING ВЕС 1 October 1950.
