Twickenham, London TW1 & TW2, is an important district in the Borough of Richmond upon Thames, and has belonged to Greater London since the 1960s. A large population and broad expansion of the district has lead to it being named as one of the most important district centres in London. Evidence from excavations suggest that the district has been settled since the beginning of human being occupation of Britain, with Early Neolithic and potential Mesolithic finds. As early as 704, Tuiccanham is mentioned in charters, signed by extremely important rulers of Anglo-Saxon London. It was part of the Hundred of Hounslow, owned by Aelfgar of Mercia before the Norman Conquest.
Despite its association with influential people, Twickenham remained a farming community for centuries, also bringing in money through fishing, trade and boat-making. As it was populated at the time, it was one of the biggest casualties of the Black Death on 1605, and it may even have had a Pest (Pestilence) House used to treat people suffering from Bubonic Plague. Nevertheless, rich people such as the Earl of Manchester and the Earl of Clarendon were eager to live in the district, due to its proximity to London.
By the mid 18th century, the inhabitants of Twickenham seem to have been indulging their vices, with a floating private house known as “The Folly”, which also cased fashionable people to be drawn into the area. This increased dissipation may have been associated with wealth arriving from Gunpowder factories located in the district. These often exploded, sometimes with disastrous consequences for the population. Many of these mills lasted until the 20th century. This increased wealth, and the dubious entertainment, caused many rich and noble people to move into the area, and several large houses were built, of which York House is a particularly interesting example. Horace Walpole, the gothic writer, lived in a house in Strawberry Hill, and Alexander Pope, the poet lived close by. Sir Frances Bacon also occupied land in the district, known as Twickenham Park.
Much of the current land around Strawberry Hill is now owned by St Mary's University College, the longest existing Catholic college in the UK. It is famous for its religious training and English Literature curriculum, and not far from this lies a former convent building near to where Alexander Pope had his villa, and there are many tourist attractions relating to the history of the district, including Pope's Grotto.
