Surrey in London

In 1889, with the formation of the County of London, administrative responsibility for 16 Surrey parishes was transferred from Surrey to new Metropolitan Boroughs. At the same time the Middlesex urban districts of Staines (comprising the parishes of Staines, Ashford, Laleham and Stanwell) and Sunbury (comprising the parishes of Sunbury, Littleton and Shepperton) were transferred to Surrey, and now form the Surrey borough of Spelthorne.

In 1965 the Greater London Council was formed and the metropolitan boroughs together with another 24 Surrey parishes were incorporated into the new London Boroughs.
