History

Feltham formed an ancient parish in the Spelthorne hundred of Middlesex.[4] In 1831 it occupied an area of 2,620 acres (11 km2) and had a population of 924.[5] From 1894 to 1904 the Felham parish was included in the Staines Rural District.[4] In 1901 the parish had a population of 4,534[5] and in 1904 it was split from the rural district to form the Feltham Urban District.[6] In 1932 the parishes of Hanworth and East Bedfont were also transferred from the Staines district to Feltham Urban District. The former area of Feltham Urban District became part of Greater London in 1965 as part of the London Borough of Hounslow.[7]
