The annual 15 day May Fair used to be held at the Haymarket but in 1686 it moved to the site of Curzon Street and Shepherd Market. About 100 years later it was suppressed by the local residents, mainly nobility, who objected to it.

Large sections of this and the surrounding area, now known as Mayfair, has been owned by the Grosvenor family since 1677.
