MARKET-STREE'r AND NEIGHBOURHOOD.



ARUET-S TRKKT is a rhapeliy, comprised within
the parishes of Caddingfon, Klamstead and Studham —
partly in the hundred of Dacorum, county of Herts,
Dut eiiiefiy in the hundreds of Klitt and Maiishead,
county of Bedford ; 29 miles n. w. hy n. from London,
3i s. w. hy s. from Luton and 8 n.' from St. Albans
The name is said to he a corruption of il/r/r/^-vrt/e or
Mark-gate street, derived from Merit or li'lark, a
bounds, y, and i/ute, a eate; for, liere it is believed was
a Kate on the IFatlintr-strect of the HomHti.s. Previous
to the opening of the great line of r.iilway, in llie
neighbourhood, ihe town derived some advantage from
its thorouiilifare .situation, on the road between London
and Birmingham, which the tiafic on the rail has now
;dl but e.'itinguished. The manufacture of .straw plat,
and of that anicle into hats and bonnets, may now be
reckoned as the prevailing branches of industry, fur-
nishing many females here with emplovmenl. The
place bas nothing to boast of itself; but the vicinity is



very respectable, and enlivened by f'Mtile scenery and
tasteful re>idences — Beerhwood Pai k, two miles hence,
and iMaikyate Cell, near to the town, are the most
conspicuous: the latter was formerly an extensive
establishment for nuns of the Benedietiiie order, under
the Abbey of Saint Albans, founded about 1 145 ; it was
rebuilt a (ew years since, and is now occunitd as a
lamily mansion. The chapel of Saint John, at Markyate
Cell, is a plain building, erected hy John Coppen, Esq.
in 17;54 : the livingisa |ierpitual ciuacy, in tlie presen-
taiion of Daniel Goodson Adey, Esq.; the Rev. Daniel
Adey is the present minister. Tlie 15
