London's Jermyn Street is named after Henry Jermyn, the Ist Earl of St Albans, who laid out St James's Square in the 17th century. Sir Isaac Newton lived at number 86, and the poet Thomas Grey, Sir Walter Scott and Lord Nelson all had lodgings in the street

Britain's most mature purveyor of cheese, and possibly also the finest, Paxton & Whitfield's history reaches back as far as 1742 when Stephen Cullum set up a cheese stall in Aldwych market.
