Click here to read a description of some of the parishes in the old County of Middlesex as well as especially the City of London's environs in James Elmes', Topographical Dictionary of London (published in 1831). Those parishes listed may be found under the name of the patron saint to which it was dedicated, i.e. St George (Hanover Square), will be listed under the "G" section under "George (St.) Hanover Sq", or, St Luke Finsbury will be listed under the "F" section under "Finsbury", and St Andrew Holborn, under the "H" section under "Holborn" and so on.

While the list of Middlesex parishes page is not at this time complete, please make especial note of those places listed on the Middlesex Parishes page that have an asterisk (*) next to it. These indicate each as an ancient parish amd in each case most parish pages have a link, or, list outright, a more complete and comprehensive list of chapelries, ancient chapels and the more modern district churches attached it. For example, the parish of Bethnal Green indicates there are fifteen chapels in the "Middlesex Parishes" page, but when you visit the ancient parish page, there actually
