Hampstead



Hampstead is a name of simple meaning being derived from Old English ham, 'a home' and stede 'a site' - meaning, literally 'the home-site', and probably refers to a farm-site. Recorded as Hemstede in the 10th century and Hamstede in the Domesday Book.

Prior to the station's opening the name Heath Street was proposed, but the station opened as HAMPSTEAD on 22 June 1907.
