The toponym Rose Hill is derived from the name of an old farmer's cottage on the A4158 Prior to the building of the present buildings between the A4158 and Lamborne Road, the land was used primarily for agriculture

The oldest homes were built between 1936 and 1939 to house people from the dilapidated slum dwelling around Jericho and St Ebbes Much of this housing was designed by George C Robb 1903–80, Chief Housing Assistant to the City Engineer's Department of Oxford City Council between 1938 and 1941 Many of the streets are named after local councillors and national politicians The most notable of these is Asquith Road, named after the UK Prime Minister and Earl of Oxford H H Asquith

After the Second World War, Orlit and Self-Built homesclarification needed were built in the 1950s and 60s to meet the then pressing need for accommodation, particularly for factory workers at Morris Motors LImited factory in nearby Cowley

Old Rose Hill comprised farm houses and farm cottages along the main road of Rose Hill and along the lane that led from Iffley to Cowley part of which is called Tree Lane There is a stone towards the foot of Rose Hill marked 'Ifily Hy Way 1635' Ifily Hy Way was then the name of the road that the council, in 1930, renamed Rose Hill Old Rose Hill now also includes housing built from the 1920s and 1930s around the road of Rose Hill There is an old turnpike on Rose Hill road, as a part of an old route between Oxford and London, engraved '56 miles to London' Cardinal Newman, beatified in 2010, had connections with old Rose Hill as well as Littlemore His mother lived on Rose Hill Frank Pakenham later Lord Pakenham also lived on old Rose Hill
