Research Tips

Hammersmith was historically a chapelry of Fulham, becoming a parish in its own right in 1631. In 1889 it was transferred from Middlesex to the newly-created County of London, and in 1900 became Hammersmith Metropolitan Borough. Hammersmith Metropolitan Borough was abolished in 1965, becoming part of the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham.
