Notes from Wikipedia

The name has been recorded as far back as 1524, and is thought to be either the name of a family, or that of a house which stood on Enfield Chase. One suggestion is that it was "the residence of the cock forester (or chief forester)".

Christ Church, Cockfosters was founded in 1839. Cockfosters is the terminal station of the Piccadilly line of the London Underground. The station was opened in 1933.
