Description:
Turkey Brook rises near the Fir and Pond Woods Local Nature Reserve near Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.

Etymology

The brook named from the street which is recorded as Tokestreete 1441, Tuckhey strete 1610, Tuckey street 1615, Turkey street 1805, probably 'street of houses (i.e hamlet) associated with a family called Toke(y) from Middle English strete.

The modern form of the name Turkey, not in use before the 19th century, is no doubt due to folk etymology. Mills A. D. Oxford Dictionary of London Place Names (2001) p231 ISBN 0198609574 Retrieved 25 October 2008
