Administrative/Biographical history:

Daniel Baker was a merchant based at Hatton Gardens. Hatton Gardens is named after the house built there by Sir Christopher Hatton in 1576, which had been demolished by 1720. The street was first known as Hatton Street, Hatton Gardens being the name for the area between Leather Lane, Saffron Hill, Holborn and Hatton Wall. Until the early 19th century it was a location for gentlemen's homes, with views over the fields towards Pentonville. Shops were permitted only on the lower side. The first jewellers were established there by 1836, and the street has subsequently become the centre of London diamond trade.
