Research Tips

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.
