When we talk of Middlesex where do we mean?

The County, the Province or the Tribal Lands?

It's possible you didn't even realise there is a choice!


We do know that anyone who says Middlesex
‘doesn’t exist’ is talking out their hat.

The assumption that because the County Council was abolished Middlesex is abolished is fanciful - did Middlesex not exist before 1889? For that is the very recent date the Middlesex County Council was formed.

And as you will read and learn,
nothing could be further from the truth.


Middlesex Day Countdown
to May 16th

Welcome to the London Borough of CAMDEN in east central  Middlesex

It was incorporated in 1965 by bringing together the Metropolitan Boroughs of Hampstead, Holborn and St. Pancras.


The name comes from a place in Kent! Before 1795 there was no Camden Town or any other Camden in this part of the Capital County. Charles Pratt, Earl Camden of Camden Place in Kent obtained possession of the Manor of Kentish Town, he let out an area for building and development which became known as Camden Town!
