Malcolm Street is named after a former benefactor to the nunnery of St Radegund, Malcolm IV, King of Scotland.
According to the Royal Commission Survey of Cambridge 1959, the five terraces of Malcolm Street, 1-6, 7-11, 16-18, 19-25 and 26-29, were probably built by James Webster, a local builder, soon after 1842.
