Castelnau is an area north of Barnes.

Castelnau is also the name of a street which runs through the middle of the area south from Hammersmith Bridge. It is ultimately derived from C astelnau-de-la-Garde in France. Major Charles Lestock Boileau, who owned the local land, built Castelnau House after the family estate near Nîmes.

Hammersmith Bridge opened in 1827, making this hitherto difficult-to-reach area quite the opposite.

By 1843, Boileau was beginning to cash in on his holdings by building. 25 years later, the Castelnau area counted some 140 houses.

After Boileau’s death, new streets were laid out.
