The Maharaja of Mysore, Charmaraja Wodeyar, granted 3,900 acres towards the creation of a settlement for the Anglo-Indian community in the year 1882. As such, Whitefield was born and was named after David White, who conceptualized the idea of this settlement and also resided here.
In 1896, a young British army officer by the name of Winston Churchill arrived in Bangalore and, as narrated by the ex-prime minister himself, fell in love with the weather, flowers and butterflies the city had to offer. In fact, the historic Waverly Hotel Bangalore Club proudly claims Winston Churchill still owes the club 13 Rupees from an unpaid bill during one of his visits. Rumour has it that during his visits, Churchill courted Rose Hamilton, the daughter of James Hamilton, who was the then owner of the Inn.
