Hampstead was historically a chapelry in the parish of Hendon in Middlesex, England, becoming a parish in its own right in 1547.

In 1889 it was transferred to the newly-created County of London and in 1900 was renamed as Hampstead Metropolitan Borough. Hampstead Metropolitan Borough was abolished in 1965, becoming part of the London Borough of Camden.
