History of Croydon

Since the majority of place names in the area are from an Anglo-Saxon origin, the theory acknowledged by most language experts, is that the name Croydon, derives originally from the Anglo-Saxon 'croh', meaning 'crocus' and 'denu' meaning 'valley'. This indicated that the area of croydon, once was a centre for the cultivation of Saffron.

Aside from that, the town lies on the Roman Road from London to Portsdale, with some archaeological evidence of there being a Roman Settlement in the area.
