The manor of Paddington, formerly held by Westminster Abbey, became in 1550 one of the estates of the Bishop of London. Thereafter the Bishop leased out the estate. An Act of 1795 permitted the granting of building leases and thus the gradual development of the estate. It reverted to the Church Commissioners in 1953. The records were created following the 1795 Act.
