"CLAPHAM, a suburban parish in the eastern division of the hundred of Brixton, in the county of Surrey, 4 miles from St. Paul's. It has a railway station on the Metropolitan Extension branch of the London, Chatham, and Dover line, and another station on Clapham Common, known as Clapham Junction, on the London and South-Western line. The village has long been considered one of the handsomest and most respectable in the suburbs of London, comprising many elegant mansions and villas surrounded by gardens and pleasure-grounds."
