Research Tips

The Precinct of the Savoy was a liberty on the western edge of the City of London, although it fell within the Liberty of Westminster in the County Middlesex rather than in the City of London. It became a civil parish in 1866. It was transferred from Middlesex to the newly-created County of London in 1889 and in 1900 became part of Westminster Metropolitan Borough. Westminster Metropolitan Borough was abolished in 1965, becoming part of the City of Westminster.
