Hainault


Hainault is not of French origin as it may seem, but is a corrup¬tion of the earlier name Hyneholt. In its turn this is derived from the Old English hiwan, 'a household' and holt, 'a wood' (or hale, 'a nook of land') - means 'the household on the land with a wood'. The household probably refers to a local religious com¬munity. The modern spelling seems to arise from a fictitious connection with a Philippa of Hainault.

The station was opened as HAINAULT by the Great Eastern Railway on 1 May 1903. First used by Underground trains (after reconstruction) on 31 May 1948.
