History of Bayswater
Bayswater began as a hamlet near what is now Lancaster Gate, but the name now covers a large area, stretching west to Notting Hill, north to Westbourne Green and east to 'to Paddington - or even beyond to Marble Arch.
In 1380, it was Bayard's drinking trough. Water was supplied from the stream which later became known as Westbourne. A Bayard was a bay (chestnut) horse, but some suggest the name may have come from a local named Baynard. The hamlet was intermittently known as Bayswatering, while Bayswater was first mentioned in 1659 when only a handful of houses stood there. Apart from a few tea gardens, a hospital and the inevitable inn or two, Bayswater remained almost entirely undeveloped in the 18th century.
Speculative builders began to appropriate the land here in 1809, led by Edward Orme, the Bond Street designer. Detached and semi-detached villas with gardens were initially the preferred forms of housing, but tree-lined and terraced avenues, plazas and crescents rapidly expanded the neighborhood in the 1840s and 1850s. from Bayswater Station in 1868, a "magnificent new town" had emerged.
