Research Tips

St Luke, or St Luke Old Street, was historically part of the parish of St Giles Cripplegate, which straddled the City of London and Middlesex. St Luke was made a parish in 1733 and lay entirely in Middlesex. In 1889 the parish of St Luke was transferred from Middlesex to the newly-created County of London and in 1900 became part of Finsbury Metropolitan Borough. Finsbury Metropolitan Borough was abolished in 1965, becoming part of the London Borough of Islington.
