Bromley Holy Trinity, Kent Genealogy
Bromley Common Holy Trinity was created as an Ecclesisatical parish in 1842 (built from 1839) to relieve pressure upon Bromley St Peter and St Paul, Kent .
Bromley St Peter and St Paul, Kent formed an ancient parish in the Bromley and Beckenham hundred and the Sutton-at-Hone lathe of Kent. In 1840 it became part of the expanded Metropolitan Police District. The parish adopted the Local Government Act 1858 and a local board was formed in 1867. The board was reconstituted as Bromley Urban District Council in 1894 and the parish became Bromley Urban District. It formed part of the London Traffic Area from 1924 and the London Passenger Transport Area from 1933. In 1934, as part of a county review order, the borough was expanded by taking in 1,894 acres (7.66 km2) from the disbanded Bromley Rural District; an area including parts of the parishes of Farnborough, Kent, Hayes, Kent, Keston, Kent and West Wickham, Kent. Bromley became part of the newly-created Greater London in 1965, in the new London Borough of Bromley.
