West Brompton

West Brompton is an area of south-west London, England, within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

The name refers to the older locality of Brompton to the east, although the areas of South Kensington and Earl's Court separate West Brompton from its namesake. Whilst in the early part of the 20th century, the whole area between Knightsbridge and here would have been known as Brompton, modern-day locals would not recognise Brompton and West Brompton as geographically contiguous. Today it still has its own Royal Mail London postcode of SW10 (though that also covers part of Chelsea).

The Oglala Sioux Native Americans, Surrounded By the Enemy and Little Chief's eighteen month old son, Red Penny were buried here in 1887. Both of them died while touring with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Little Chief and Good Robe's daughter, Over the Sea was born in Salford during the Wild West show's tour and baptised in February 1888. St Clement's Church in Ordsall registers recorded her name as Frances Victoria Alexander. She was named after Frances Cleveland of America, Queen Victoria and Alexandra the Princess of Wales.
