30 Maida Hill West was the home of James O'Mara and family.
They lived there from at least 1901.
They left in 1907.

Immediately after O'Maras left in 1907, the poet John Masefield lived here, in 1907-1912.

While living there, he wrote many of his major works, including The Tragedy of Nan, The Everlasting Mercy and The Widow in the Bye Street.
In 1939 Maida Hill West became Maida Ave.
