A small park laid out post WWII on bomb damaged area at the east side of the Parktown Estate which was built from 1865 onwards.

Its overall street layout planned by developer Philip Flower and designer James Thomas Knowles, son of Sir James Knowles who had laid out the Cedars Estate south of Clapham Common.
Sir James was one of a number of influential members of a committee of Clapham residents who successfully lobbied for a new road link extending Queens Road (now Queenstown Road) to Clapham from Battersea Park, the new road financed by the development of the land for housing.
Up until then much of this area had been farmland belonging to Longhedge Farm between Battersea Fields to the north and Clapham Common in the south. Its name derived from the northern boundary hedge along what is now Battersea Park Road. Montefiore Gardens is important as an area of public open space in this area.
