Hanworth is an urban and suburban London district on its south-west edge that is contiguous with Feltham, its post town and with Hampton. Historically in Middlesex, it now forms part of the London Borough of Hounslow. The name is thought to come from the Anglo Saxon words “haen/han” and “worth”, meaning “small homestead”.
Hanworth is one of the ancient parishes of Middlesex. From 1894 to 1930 it was part of Staines Rural District and from 1930 it was part of Feltham Urban District. In 1965, Feltham Urban District was abolished, becoming part of the London Borough of Hounslow.
