Guide to... Duke of York Street
The area around Duke of York Street formed part of the land granted to the Earl of St. Albans's trustees in 1665.
South of Apple Tree Yard (formerly Angier Street) and Ormond Yard (sometimes also called Angier Street, or Blackamoor Street or Blackmoor Head Yard) the street was flanked by St. James's Square. Apple Tree Yard and Ormond Yard were part of the gardens to houses on Jermyn Street. York Street was probably named in honour of James, Duke of York, who succeeded to the throne as James II in 1685.
