History

Gordon Hill is developed on the site of the 18th century mansion Gordon House. Gordon House was built on the Chase near the top of what is now Gordon Hill. It was named after an early occupant, Lord George Gordon (1751-93), instigator of the Gordon Riots. It later belonged to Sir Thomas Hallifax (1721-89), Lord Mayor of London. Gordon House was demolished in about 1860, and the area laid out for housing. Development accelerated in 1909 with the arrival of the railway.
