Named after Charles Pratt (Earl Camden) who granted leases for building houses on this part of his estate in the 1790s. Prior to that, the area that is now Camden Town had a couple of inns and was frequented by highwaymen so it was a bit dangerous. There was a gibbet near Camden Underground station where they were 'punished'. Within a short period of time, Camden became a popular place for music and shopping and remains so to this day.
