Victorian London - Districts - Somers Town 

SOMERS TOWN. A poorly inhabited suburb of London, on the north-west side, and so called from the noble family of Somers, whose freehold property it is, or was, when it was named. "The Brill," or, as Dr. Stukeley has called it, Caesar's Camp, is a part of the present Somers Town.

Peter Cunningham, Hand-Book of London, 1850
