Etymology

Clay Hill is recorded as Clayhyll 1524, Clayhillgate 1636, apparently self-explanatory, 'hill with clay soil', with -gate which refers to gate of Enfield Chase. However the local name Claysmore, earlier Clayes More Grove 1610, is to be associated with the family of William atte Cleye (that is 'at the clayey place') 1274, John Clay 1420. Clay Hill may derive from a surname rather than the word clay.Mills A. D. Oxford Dictionary of London Place Names (2001) p49 ISBN 0198609574 Retrieved 27 October 2008

History

Whitewebbs has longstanding links with the Gunpowder Plot, as Guy Fawkes and his fellow revolutionaries are known to have used a safe house in Whitewebbs Lane, Enfield. The claim as to location of this safe house is held by the Rose and Crown Public House which was extended into what would have been cottages at the time. He is also reputed to have drunk at the King and Tinker pub, known then as The White Hart.
