Administrative/Biographical history:

The modern Arnos Grove originated in woods known as Arnolds which consisted of a house and 24 acres of land. In 1584 this was conveyed to Humphrey Weld (later knighted), a grocer from London. Weld added to the estates with 13 acres purchased from Robert Cecil in 1610. He died in 1611 and his son, Sir John Weld, bought a further 150 acres from William Cecil, Earl of Salisbury, in 1614, including the Minchenden woods in Southgate. John Weld died in 1623 and his widow Frances sold the property in 1645.
