Gunnersbury

Gunnersbury. Tradition has it that on a site near here stood the dwelling of Gunhilda (or Gunyld) the niece of the Danish King Canute (reigned 1016-1035) but this seems to rest on unsup-ported evidence. Recorded as Gounyldebury in 1334 its name seems to be derived, nevertheless, from a female name of Scandinavian origin - Gunnhild's (or variations) and the Old English burh, 'a manor'. It was recorded as Gunsbury in с. 1651.

The station was opened by the London & South Western Railway as BRENTFORD ROAD on 1 January 1869 and re-named GUNNERSBURY on 1 November 1871. First used by District and Metropolitan trains on 1 June 1877, the Metropolitan Railway's trains until 31 December 1906.
