Research Tips

Wittering is a village and parish. Historically part of Northamptonshire, when County Councils were created in 1889 Wittering was made part of the Soke of Peterborough administrative county, which was nominally still part of Northamptonshire, but independent of Northamptonshire County Council. The Soke of Peterborough was merged with Huntingdonshire in 1965 to form the administrative county of Huntingdon and Peterborough, which was itself abolished in 1974 and absorbed into Cambridgeshire. Since 1998, Wittering has been a parish in the unitary authority of the City of Peterborough, although remains part of the ceremonial county of Cambridgeshire.
