Facts About Highbury East

Highbury East had the manor house located beside the current eastern side of Hornsey Road in proximity to the Seven Sisters Road Junction. Here are some interesting facts about Highbury East: 

  • The new manor house was constructed after the decay of the original. 
  • It was nestled on a hill and named Highbury and was clearly differentiated from the original structure. This is where the area derives its name from. 
  • A Roman garrison possibly used the site for this manor as their own summer camp. A new Highbury House was built in 1781 and tiles were found that may have dated back to Norman or Roman times. 
  • Highbury ownership ultimately passed to Alicia de Barrow who handed it to the Priory of St John of Jerusalem in 1271. Lord Prior built Highway manor as a sizable country estate with its bar and grange. 
  • A mob was led in 1381 during the Peasant Revolution by Jack Straw and they destroyed this manor house. The Lord Prior of the time, Robert Hales, was ultimately beheaded on Tower Hill. 
  • The destroyed manor became known as Jack Straw’s Castle for the next 500 years since he initially used it as a temporary headquarters with some followers. 
  • Henry VIII confiscated this manor in 1540 and the land was crown property till the 17th century. It was acquired by stockbroker John Dawes and he constructed Highbury House in 1781. The house was extended by owners over the next three decades. Lush gardens and a massive observatory were included as a result. 
  • The grounds were sold off from 1794 onwards and by 1894, the building and remaining area turned into a school. In 1938, the property was ultimately demolished. It houses Eton House flats today and these were built in the year 1939.
