Middlesex is a historic county in southeast England. Its area is almost entirely within the wider urbanised area of London and mostly within the ceremonial county of Greater London, with small sections in neighbouring ceremonial counties. It was established in the Anglo-Saxon period from the territory of the Middle Saxons, and existed as an official administrative unit until 1965. The county is bounded to the south by the River Thames, and has the rivers Colne and Lea and a ridge of hills forming its other boundaries.

Middlesex was divided into 6 hundreds; namely Spelthorne, Isleworth, Elthorne, Gore, Ossulstone and Edmonton.

The administration of Middlesex over the last few hundred years is extremely complex and is bound-up with the administration of London. See More Information on London

Despite being surrounded by Middlesex the City of London was a separate Jurisdiction.

Hello, please remove the link to "Category: Gore Hundred, Middlesex" as that category is waiting to be deleted.

Thanks, regards, Margaret, Categorization Project volunteer.

Margaret. Please see my reply to Stephen. Chris

Please edit the links to the Hundreds, which are being removed as categories. The links should point to the corresponding Wikipedia pages instead. Thank you!

Stephen. As I'm not quite sure what the plan is for the Hundreds and no one else seems to have actioned this for you - I've added you to the trusted list for this page. I hope this helps. Chris

The Stradametrical Survey of London (1851) is available as a free download. Consisting of London street names, it gives distances to other streets and is helpful in locating lost streets.
