The court was named for the nearby Adam and Eve tavern.

Medieval mystery and morality plays were acted in inn-yards on holy days, often beginning with the story of Adam and Eve.

Many such inns adopted a signboard with their distinctive costume. An Adam & Eve stood in the fields about 50 yards behind Oxford Street, approached from the road by a little lane which was built up and named Adam & Eve Court in the 1720s.
