Local Digital Marketers with Local Knowledge: A Short History of Hertfordshire
Bordered to the north by Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, to the east by Essex, Greater London to the south and Buckinghamshire to the west, Hertfordshire is a beautiful county with thousands of years of history.
There is evidence of life in what is now known as Hertfordshire dating back to the Mesolithic period (between 5,000 and 15,000 years ago). The area was first farmed in the Neolithic period (between 6,000 and 12,000 years ago) and was settled permanently at the start of the Bronze Age which was around 3,000 – 4,000 years ago. Hertfordshire has a very long history!
The Romans arrived in 43BC and the local people very quickly submitted to Roman life. This resulted in a number of new towns including Verulamium which became St Albans. In fact, the patron saint of Hertfordshire is Saint Alban and his martyr’s cross of a yellow saltire on a blue field is reflected in the flag and coat of arms of Hertfordshire as the yellow field to the stag or Hart representing the county (and the logo of Watford Football Club!)
After the Romans left in the 5th century, the area came under the control of first the Anglo-Saxons, then the East Saxons and then the West Anglians of Mercia and the region finally became a shire in the 10th century.
Under the rule of Edward the Elder in 913, a fortress was constructed in Hertford. The name drives from the Anglo-Saxon heort-ford, meaning a deer crossing of a ford and the name Hertfordshire was first recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1011.
Many of today’s town names come from this time, including the traditional Anglo-Saxon suffixes of ‘ford’ (Hertford), ‘ton’ (Royston), ‘den’ (Harpenden), ‘bourn’ (Redbourn), ‘ley’ (Cuffley), ‘stead’ (Wheathampstead), ‘ing’ (Tring), ‘lett’ (Radlett), ‘wood’ (Borehamwood) and ‘worth’ (Rickmansworth).
In the 11th century, a certain William of Normandy received the surrender of the last surviving English Lords & Clergy at Berkhamsted which resulted in him using his new, Anglicised title of William the Conqueror and he built a number of castles in the area, most notably at Bishop’s Stortford and King’s Langley.
As we move through the centuries, in the later Plantagenet period St Albans Abbey was home to the first draft of the Magna Carta and in the Wars of the Roses (1455 – 1487), St Albans was home to two battles, in 1455 and then in 1460.
In Tudor times Queen Elizabeth I spent a good deal of time at Hatfield House, as did King James VI of Scotland (King James I of England) who used it as a hunting lodge. King Charles II facilitated the construction of the New River which supplied drinking water to London.
As London spread out in the 18th and 19th centuries, Hertfordshire was the obvious place for overspill. The Industrial Revolution saw the development of manufacturing and industry in the county and the population rose dramatically.
In 1903, Letchworth became the world’s first garden city, followed 15 years later by Welwyn Garden City (both designed by Ebenezer Howard) and just after World War II, Stevenage became the first town to be redeveloped under the New Towns Act 1946.
We can’t write a potted history of Hertfordshire without mentioning film and TV. From the 1920s until the 1980s, Borehamwood was home to some of the most famous film studios in the country. It was known as the ‘British Hollywood’ and famous films such as The Dam Busters, the Star Wars trilogy, Moby Dick, Summer Holiday, Dr Zhivago, 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining were filmed there.
Today it’s home to EastEnders, Holby City, Strictly Come Dancing and Big Brother.
Over at the Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden near Watford, the entire Harry Potter series was filmed there, as was James Bond film GoldenEye.
Hertfordshire is home to many towns that form the London commuter belt and benefits from superb road and rail links that can get you to almost anywhere in the country and today, it is a thriving, bustling county with a great mixture of businesses, manufacturing and industry as well as some excellent schools, colleges and universities.
Web design in Hertfordshire is fantastic and the area is home to a vibrant and eclectic population and here at Scout, we consistently support the local business community.
