TOPONYMY

Bettany Hughes
Bettany Hughes
describing the Roman-era river crossing at Brentford
Brentford

The name is recorded as Breguntford in 705 in an Anglo-Saxon charter and means 'ford over the River Brent
River Brent
'. The name of the river is Celtic and means 'holy one' and the '-ford' suffix is Old English
Old English
. The ford was most likely located where the main road crossed the river. NEW BRENTFORD is recorded as Newe Braynford in 1521 and was previously known as Westbraynford. OLD BRENTFORD is recorded as Old Braynford in 1476 and was previously known as Estbraynford.

URBAN DEVELOPMENT

The settlement pre-dates the Roman occupation of Britain , and thus pre-dates the founding of London
London
itself. Many pre-Roman artifacts have been excavated in and around the area in Brentford
Brentford
known as 'Old England'. Bronze Age
Bronze Age
pottery and burnt flints have been found in separate sites in Brentford. The quality and quantity of the artefacts suggests that Brentford
Brentford
was a meeting point for pre-Romanic tribes. One well known Iron Age
Iron Age
piece from about 100 BC – AD 50 is the Brentford

horn-cap – a ceremonial chariot fitting that formed part of local antiquarian Thomas Layton's collection, now held by the Museum of London

Brentford
Brentford
is the first point which was easily fordable by foot on the tidal portion of the River Thames
River Thames
(this was before dredging took place). Partly for this reason it has been suggested that Julius Cæsar crossed the Thames here during his invasion of Britain in 54 BC. In his own account, he writes that he crossed the river 80 miles (130 km) from the sea and Brentford
Brentford
is also this distance from his supposed landing beach. He further states that the river bank was protected by sharp stakes. During the building of Brentford Dock
Brentford Dock
many such oak stakes were discovered. Dredging the river uncovered so many more that they had to be removed, for they were a hazard to navigation. Although his descriptions are compelling, there is as yet, no archaeological proof that this was indeed the spot where he and his army had to fight to cross. It must also be kept in mind that Julius Cæsar's own accounts suffered in some part, to his embellishment of the facts. Nevertheless, outside the local County Courts there now stands the Brentford
Brentford
Monument, hewn from solid pink granite, whereupon it is asserted, that a documented battle took place here at this time between Cæsar's forces and Cassivellaunus . There are, however, two other historically accredited battles of Brentford in 1016 and 1642.

LOCAL FAIR

A local town fair, called the Brentford
Brentford
Festival, has been held in Brentford
Brentford
every September since 1900.

THE HARDWICK FAMILY

A notable family from Brentford
Brentford
was the 18th/19th century architectural father and son partnership, the Hardwicks. Thomas Hardwick Senior (1725–1798) and Thomas Hardwick Junior (1752–1829) were both from Brentford
Brentford
and are buried in the old church of St Laurence. Hardwick Senior was the master mason for the Adam Brothers during the construction of Syon House
Syon House
. Hardwick Junior assisted in the building of Somerset House and was known for his designs of churches in the capital. He was also a tutor of J.M.W Turner whom he helped start Turner's illustrious career in art. Both father and son did a great deal of remodelling and rebuilding on the church of St Laurence.

BRENTFORD MONUMENT

Monument outside Brentford
Brentford
County Court commemorating four major events in the town's history.

In 1909 a monument was made out of two stone pillars that used to support lamps on the old Brentford
Brentford
bridge over the Grand Union Canal. The monument originally stood at the end of Ferry Lane; after being covered in coal unloaded from boats, it was moved further up the lane in 1955. In 1992 it was moved again to its present site at the junction of Brentford
Brentford
High Street and Alexandra Road, outside the County Court. The monument commemorates four major events in Brentford's history: the supposed crossing of the Thames by Julius Caesar in 54 BC; the council of Brentford
Brentford
by King Offa of Mercia
Offa of Mercia
in 781; the defeat of King Canute by King Edmund Ironside at the first Battle of Brentford

SAINT PAUL\'S CHURCH

Saint Paul's Church

Built in 1868 from Kentish ragstone , Saint Paul's Church is one of Brentford's two current Anglican parish churches , and a distinct landmark. Its spire is clearly visible. The architect was H. Francis. In 1959 and 1961 the parishes of the nearby churches of Saint George and Saint Lawrence were amalgamated with Saint Paul.

Inside the church is a painting by local artist Johann Zoffany
Johann Zoffany
called Christ's Last Supper. It was originally intended to be installed in St Anne\'s Church, Kew
Kew
, but the local people objected, and therefore in 1887 it was installed in Saint George's Church instead. When that church was closed in 1959, the painting was transferred to its present location in Saint Paul's Church.

SAINT FAITH\'S CHURCH

Brentford's other Anglican parish church, Saint Faith's, is a comparatively recent building, dating from 1906-7. Designed in Gothic Revival style, by G F Bodley and D G Hare, it was described by the poet John Betjeman
John Betjeman
:

St Faith’s displays all the splendour of Bodley in its simplicity and strength. It rises like a great ship over the housetops and inside the view from the west end leads you naturally to the altar and up to the roof.

SAINT LAWRENCE\'S CHURCH

The derelict St Lawrence's church

There has been a church on the site of Brentford's former parish church of Saint Lawrence since the 12th century, but the tower dates from the 15th century, and the remainder of the church was rebuilt in 1764 from brick. There were a number of interesting monuments in the church, including one dedicated to a Maurice de Berkeley, dating from 1189, who was buried in the original church. The church was closed in 1961 and the monuments removed, and the parish was united with Saint Paul's. The church has now been in a derelict state for more than half a century. A war memorial stood outside the church until 2009, when it was moved to Brentford
Brentford
Library.

SAINT JOHN THE EVANGELIST\'S CHURCH

The church, opened in 1866, was built for Irish railway construction workers, by an architect named Jackman.

SAINT GEORGE\'S CHURCH

An unconsecrated chapel was built from subscriptions raised from 57 prominent inhabitants on the site in 1762; previously the parish was part of Ealing. The old chapel was demolished in 1886 and eventually replaced by the current building designed by A. W. Blomfield. The painting of the Last Supper by Zoffany was transferred to the new church. It was closed in 1959 and used as the home for the Musical Museum from 1963 until the Museum moved to new premises. It is now (2017) being converted into flats.

Brave New World
. Set in London
London
of AD 2540 (632 A.F.—"After Ford"—in the book), this influential dystopia anticipates developments in reproductive technology , sleep-learning, psychological manipulation , and classical conditioning that combine to change society profoundly.

The BBC Three sitcom People Just Do Nothing is set in and around Brentford.

The Brentford Trilogy , a series of "far fetched fiction" novels by Robert Rankin , humorously chronicle the lives of a couple of drunken middle-aged layabouts, Jim Pooley and John Omally, who confront the forces of darkness in the environs of West London, usually with the assistance of large quantities of beer from their favourite public house, The Flying Swan.
