Research Tips

Grays Inn is one of the four Inns of Court, located at the western edge of the City of London, although it lies just outside the boundary of the City in the historic county of Middlesex. Administratively it was historically an extra-parochial area, becoming a civil parish in 1858. In 1889 Grays Inn was transferred from Middlesex to the newly-created County of London, becoming part of the Holborn Metropolitan Borough in 1900. Holborn Metropolitan Borough was abolished in 1965, becoming part of the London Borough of Camden.
