History

The ancient archdeaconry has been a division of London diocese since archdeaconries were first created in England in the 12th century. Historically it covered most of London other than the City of London and the East End. It was for ten years in the Marian-period (Roman Catholic) Diocese of Westminster from 1540, then re-absorbed back into the London diocese in 1550 as the church parted, for the final time, from Rome. [1] It was split on 23 July 1912 to create the Archdeaconry of Hampstead [2] and since further split to create the Archdeaconries of Northolt (in 1970) and of Charing Cross (in c.1989).
