Hodgkin House was named in recognition of Thomas Hodgkin who was born in Tottenham on August 17th 1798. He was a physician, a pioneer on preventative medicine.

In 1832, Hodgkin published the first recognised description of lymphoma. By 1865 a form of the disease was named after Hodgkin and we now call it Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Outside of his medical studies, Hodgkin was a part of the antislavery society.
