The Ancient Parish of Totteridge

Totteridge was an Ancient Parish in the county of Hertfordshire. Civil Parishes took over from Ancient Parishes in the 1860s, followed by Urban District Councils in 1894 and then London Boroughs in 1965. Since 1965, Totteridge has formed part of the London Borough of Barnet.

Surrounding it is the Hertfordshire parish of Chipping Barnet and the Middlesex parishes of Finchley and Hendon.

The Society has produced a Parish Guide to Totteridge.


St Andrew, Totteridge

It seems likely that the present church building stands on the site of the earliest church mentioned in 1250 AD in a document which records Totteridge Church as belonging to St. Etheldreda’s, Hatfield from whence it took its dedication, changing in the Reformation to St Andrew.

Records include baptisms (1546-1903), marriages (1546-1945) and burials (1570-1937) and are held at Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies.
