Local information

  • Sekforde Street takes its name from an Elizabethan man of law, Thomas Sekford (1517-1587) who bequeathed a part of his Clerkenwell estate. He was a lawyer and MP under the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The estate (as we know it) began its redevelopment in the late 1820s with the layout of the street designed by C.R. Cokerall (surveyor) and his assistant James Noble. Most of the early development was non domestic with a wallpaper factory, a mahogany warehouse, livery, stables, a builders work shop and a parochial school. In early 1831, Henry Johnson a brick layer of Charterhouse Lane had been employed taking on the role of building the houses, this role was continued by his son Henry Johnson and by 1837 the greater part of Sekforde Street had been completed. Sekforde Street was the most important of the streets laid out on the Sekforde Estate in the late 1820s and is currently the best preserved, still retaining the majority of its original houses. Conventional in design the houses mostly have round-arched doorways and Classical Georgian facades. The houses when built were mainly occupied by skilled craftspeople, typically engaged in jewellery making, clock, watches, working precious metals, building and printing.
