History

Called Tatarige in the 13c, The settlement is probably named after someone called Tata.[2] The ridge is the high ground between the valleys of the Dollis Brook and Folly Brook. Over the centuries rural qualities of Totteridge attracted well-to-do families. Cardinal Manning was born at Copped Hall in Totteridge in 1808.[3] With opening of Great Northern Railway station in 1872, late-Victorian and Edwardian mansions were built around the old village. With conversion in late 1930s of the railway station into the undeground station on the Northern Line, smaller properties were built between the wars within walking distance from the station (Totteridge and Whetstone tube station). In 1968 much of Totteridge was designated a Conservation Area and no any major developments took place since then.

Totteridge was a civil parish of Hertfordshire covering an area of 1,604 acres (6.49 km2)[4] and formed part of a thin protrusion into Middlesex. It became part of Barnet Rural District in 1894, and then formed part of Barnet Urban District from 1914 to 1965. In 1965, the parish and urban district were abolished by the London Government Act 1963 and its area was transferred from Hertfordshire to Greater London, to became part of the London Borough of Barnet. In 1901 the parish had a population of 844 and by 1951 it had risen to 4,500.[5]
