St. Albans St. Peter's was an ancient parish. Part of the parish was within the Municipal Borough of St. Albans until 1894, when it was split to create St. Peter Urban Parish within the borough and St. Peter Rural Parish outside the town to the west. St. Peter Rural became part of St. Albans Rural District.

Parts of St. Peter Rural were transferred into the borough of St. Albans in 1913 (992 acres) and in 1935 (436 acres). Also, in 1935, 923 acres went to Bishops Hatfield and 186 acres were gained from North Mimms, 67 acres from Ridge and 325 acres from Shenley.

The population in 1901 was 3,568 and in 1931 it was 7,908. (There was no census in 1941.)

In 1947 the parish was abolished, being split between the new parishes of Colney Heath and London Colney.
