History

From daredevil pilots to royal molecatchers, and from manor houses to once rural villages: Our borough is rich in history - fascinating characters, interesting tales, and towns recorded in the Domesday book. Curious about the area's past and its role in various national or international events? Then read on. We have collated years of history articles for you from Around Ealing magazine and included others that have appeared online more recently, which will be added to regularly as we go along. Thanks must go to the borough's archivist Dr Jonathan Oates - because most of the Around Ealing items were originally written or researched by him, unless otherwise specified in the article. Watch out for new stories in this section - including a serialisation of a diary from the 1930s.
