Parish History

'WALLINGTON, a hamlet, in the parish of Beddington, union of Croydon, Second division of the hundred of Wallington, E. division of Surrey, 2¾ miles (W. by S.) from Croydon; containing 934 inhabitants. This place, called in Domesday Book Woleton, gives name to the hundred. Here was formerly a chapel, pulled down in 1791; it had latterly been used as a stable and cart-house. The building was of stone and flints: on each side of the east window was a niche, of rich pointed architecture; and at the south-east corner was another niche, for holy water. On the road to the village of Beddington are some national schools, built in 1843, at the cost of £1300.'[1]

Wallington was united with Beddington Parish by the year 1800 (see Beddington).
