Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of Tottenham measured 4,680 acres in 1831. It was divided by a Roman road known as High Road which ran north to south through the parish and around which most of the early settlement was situated. The parish of Tottenham also included Wood Green and Harringay. The parish was bordered to the east by the river Lea and Essex; to the north by Edmonton, to the west by Friern Barnet and Hornsey, and to the south by Hornsey, Stoke Newington and Hackney.

The parish church of Tottenham is first mentioned in 1134, when it was granted to the canons of Holy Trinity, Aldgate. A vicarage was endowed by the Bishop of London in 1198, and the position of vicar was usually held by the prior of Holy Trinity. After the Reformation the advowson was granted to the chapter of Saint Paul's. The parish church of All Hallows is situated on Church Lane. The building has been altered and extended many times since the 15th century.
