It remained largely agricultural aside from the popular royal residence and hunting park (now Richmond Park) until the 18th and 19th centuries when many grand period houses were built as the area became popular with aristocracy. As with most of South West London the real development and growth of the area came with the introduction of the railway in 1846.
