"The name Hainault was recorded as 'Henehout' in 1221 and 'Hyneholt' in 1239. It is Old English and means 'wood belonging to a religious community', referring to the ownership of Hainault Forest, part of the larger Epping Forest, by Barking Abbey. . . . The area was mainly forested, it was owned by Barking Abbey and formed part of the Royal Forest of Essex. . . . Urban development began after August 1856, when the Great Eastern Railway built a line between Stratford and Loughton." [Wikipedia]
