Two accounts and meanings.

If you've got this far you might like to see the plaque on the Wax Well which says:
"Wax Well Name was first recorded in 1274 as "Wakeswell" thought to mean "Waecc's" spring. Until mid-19th century the well was the most important source of water in Pinner Village and reputed to have healing properties."

This is not quite the same as the derivation on Peter Bartlett's website which says:
"Wax-Well, at the end of Waxwell Lane, is thought to be derived from the Anglo-Saxon Woecce - to guard. It is adjacent to Waxwell that we find Grimes Dyke, an ancient earthworks constructed in pre-Roman days and which formed the ancient boundaries of Mercia."

The beauty of history - it's not cast in stone! The mystery of history?
