The Silverstone website has this information on there and more. More about the corners, but not the history, here http://www.silverstone.co.uk/php/hi_corners.php

Quote:
Silverstone – named after the early English word for “wooded” area
Maggots – named after Maggots Moor
Becketts Corner & Chapel Curve – gave their names to the ruins of the Chapel of Thomas à Beckett
Hangar Straight - named after two aircraft hangars that originally stood next to the straight
Stowe Corner - derives from the famous Stowe School to the south of the circuit
Club Corner - named after the RAC club in Pall Mall
Abbey Curve - near the site of the ancient Luffield Abbey
Woodcote - named after the location of the RAC club in Surrey

Relevant but slightly off topic is the fact the Thomas Becket is not spelled with an a ! Apparently that was a sort of typo of the day! Some scribe got it wrong and it stuck!
