Earl's Court

Earl's Court. After the Conquest the De Vere family were granted the Manor of Kensington which at one time had a court house. Later the head of the family was created Earl of Oxford, hence the name Earl's Court.

The old Court stood beside a little lane which is still called Old Manor Yard, but the court building was demolished in 1886. Now on the site are Barkston and Bramham Gardens.

The station was opened as EARL'S COURT on 31 October 1871, burnt down 30 December 1875 and repaired temporarily; new station further west opened 1 February 1878.
