The Pursgloves of Hornsey, Middlesex - [HORM]

This parish is close to Hendon in the northern part of Greater London and was recorded in 1202.  It was most likely formed with the building of the church of St Mary in the 13th century.  The name is considered to come from the enclosure name of the local cheif, Haering's Hege - Hearings enclosure, later interpreted as Hornsey or Heringsey.

In 1867 This district was a London Borough.  At this time the village was growing very quickly with an influx of industrial workers.  It has since been incorporated into the London Borough of Harringay in 1965.
