Guide to Greenhill, Middlesex ancestry, family history, and genealogy: Parish registers, transcripts, census records, birth records, marriage records, and death records.

Parish History[edit | edit source]

GREENHILL, ahamlet, in the parish of Harrow, union of Hendon, hundred of Gore, county of Middlesex, 1 mile N by E from the town of Harrow.[1]

St John Greenhill was a district church built and in operation by 1866 lying within the civil parish boundaries of Harrow St Mary. Here is the "History" of this small church from | their website:

"For most of the last thousand years, the town of Harrow had its centre at the top of the hill, where St Mary's [ancient and civil parish] Church was consecrated in 1094. It was only in the nineteenth century that the village of Greenhill grew sufficiently, to a population of about 400, to require a church of its own, which was built on the present site in 1866. This small brick church, sometimes called the “candle snuffer” from the shape of its tower, was staffed by assistant curates from St Mary's, and in 1885 Rev. Thomas Smith (known to all as Tommy) was licensed as curate in charge of St John's. The Victoria Hall, a parish hall rather than a church hall, but with close connections with the church, was opened on the site of the shops at the west end of the church in 1888. (It was rebuilt in its present position in GREENHILL, in 1963.) Greenhill became a separate parish in 1896, with Tommy Smith as its first vicar."
