History

North Sheen, whose etymology is shared with East Sheen, formed a civil parish from 1894 to 1965.[2] Historically, it formed part of the Mortlake parish and became part of the expanded Municipal Borough of Richmond in 1892.[3] Under the Local Government Act 1894, a new North Sheen parish was created from part of Mortlake, with the remainder of Mortlake then forming part of Barnes Urban District. The North Sheen parish covered an area of 329 acres (1.33 km2). In 1901 the population was 2,807 and in 1951 it was 7,429.[4]

North Sheen was first marked on maps from 1904.[1] At that time it was mostly undeveloped, but by 1920 residential building was underway.[1]
