House Clearance in Edmonton
Edmonton, noted for its witch and devil, for John Gilpin
and its 18th-century fairs, lay about 7 miles from London on the main road to Ware and the north. Southgate, known for its elegant mansions and the cricketing Walker brothers, lay some 2¼ miles west of Edmonton village. Edmonton parish was a compact rectangle in shape, approximately 5 miles long and 2¼ miles from north to south until the Act for inclosing Enfield Chase in 1777 added 1,231 a. jutting into Enfield from the north-west corner. About 1860 part of the Chase allotment, which was owned by the lord of the manor and the tithe owners of Enfield, was assigned to Enfield parish, leaving Edmonton with a very irregular boundary and a small isolated piece of land at World’s End, which was transferred to Enfield in 1926. Southgate, a separate local government unit from 1881, received a strip of land from Enfield in the north-west between 1931 and 1951 and there were minor boundary changes with Wood Green in 1892 and with Friern Barnet by 1951. The total acreage varied little, rising from 7,480 a. in 1831 to 7,491 a. in 1901 and 7,660 a. in 1951. Edmonton and Southgate united with Enfield to form the London Borough of Enfield in 1965.
The eastern boundary followed the river Lea, whose tributaries formed part of the boundary with Enfield. Tottenham mark, mentioned many times in the 13th century, was a ditch or hedge between Tottenham and Edmonton. Bounds Green and Waterfall Road formed part of the boundaries in the south-west with Tottenham and Friern Barnet but the rest of the western boundary with East Barnet (Herts.) and the northern one with Enfield ran through woodland containing only estate boundaries and the gates of the Chase. The portion of Enfield Chase allotted to Edmonton after 1777 was marked by straight lines bearing no relation to natural features.
