Additional information:

According to the following 1848 written treatise on this parish, from the Topographical Dictionary of England, the article incorrectly ascribes the ancient parish of Tottenham as being dedicated with the name, All Saints. This mistake is also repeated in the Imperial Gazetteer of England published in about the year 1870. The name by which it is known and dedicated to, today is: All Hallows. It appears that this church was never offically called by nor dedicated with the name of 'All Saints'.
