Also in Barnet in 1871: e.g. RG10 piece 1331 folio 103 page 5.

So I think Barnet is your answer.

South Mimms is north of Dancer's Hill and was also in Barnet.

BUT it was in Middlesex! ;D

Not sure where the county boundary was?


South Mimms Urban was a parish in Hertfordshire from 1894 until 1965.

The Herts/Middx boundary has certainly moved about in this area -- for example, Potters Bar was in Middlesex when I was very young but shifted to Hertfordshire when I was in junior school -- so 1965?? (Potters Bar being our post town, I well remember letters having to be addressed very awkwardly as "Cuffley (Herts), Potters Bar, Middx"!).

From dim and distant memory, I have an impression of Barnet being in Middlesex as well, so may well have been involved in the same bit of reorganisation.

Collins - SE London / Kent
Clark - central London
Monk - Co. Durham
Owen - Cardiganshire & SE London / Kent
Richardson - Kent/Sussex

Taylor - Suffolk
Walker - Herts (Redbourn)
