Hackney ‘Did you know?’

  • The first real records of settlement in Hackney date back to Saxon times. The name ‘Hackney’ was first recorded in 1198 AD and is probably derived from an island or a raised place in a marsh (an ‘ey’) in the vicinity of the River Lea, together with the name of a Dane, called Haca or Hacon, who owned it.
  • Like most areas, Hackney had initially been a rural community. Even as late as the 18th century, Hackney was still mostly pasture enclosed farmland, with small hamlets and very little woodland. Feeling homely?
  • Hackney boasts 1,300 listed buildings, including the iconic Hackney Empire and the Grade 1 listed Old Tower of the former Church of Saint Augustine.
