The earliest references to the name “Temple Fortune” is on a map (c.1754). However this name reveals a much earlier history, and it is likely that the name refers to the Knights of St John who had land here circa 1240. Fortune may be derived from a small settlement (tun) on the route from Hampstead to Hendon arrived at before arriving at Hendon. Here a lane from Finchley, called Ducksetters Lane (c.1475), intersected. It is likely that the settlement was originally the Bleccanham estate circa 900. By the end of the 18th century Temple Fortune Farm was established on the northern side of Farm Close.
The building of the Finchley Road (c.1827), replaced Ducksetters Lane as a route to Finchley, and resulted in the development of a small hamlet called Hendon Park Row, which was, with two exceptions, demolished in 1956. A small dame school and prayer house run by Anglican Deaconesses existed in the 1890s and 1900s, which developed to become St Barnabas (1915). Along the Finchley Road, a number of villas was joined by the Royal Oak public house around 1850. By the end of the 19th century there were around 300 people living in the area, which included a laundry, a small hospital and a number of brick making plants.
The significant moment in Temple Fortune’s development into a suburban area occurred in 1907. The establishment of the Hampstead Garden Suburb brought major changes to the area east of the Finchley Road. Temple Fortune Farm was demolished, and along the front of the road, the building of Arcade, and Gateway House established the Hampstead Garden Suburbs retail district. Also significant in that year was the opening of Golders Green tube station. Read more…
