Poplar, or Poplar All Saints, was historically an extra-parochial area associated with the parish of Stepney, becoming a chapelry in 1654. Poplar became a parish in its own right in 1817. In 1889 it was transferred from Middlesex to the newly-created County of London and in 1900 became part of Poplar Metropolitan Borough. Poplar Metropolitan Borough was abolished in 1965, becoming part of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Poplar is No. 20 on the map.
