Parish History

A Topographical Dictionary of England 1848

DALSTON, a suburban village, in the parish of Hackney, Tower division of the hundred of Ossulstone, county of Middlesex, 2½ miles (N. N. E.) from London. This place, which has greatly increased within the last few years, extends from the village of Hackney towards Kingsland, and consists of several handsome ancient mansions, and numerous neat houses of modern erection. A church, dedicated to St. Philip, and capable of accommodating 1000 persons, was consecrated in August, 1841, having been erected at a cost of £5700, on ground given by the late Mr. W. Rhodes: the living is in the gift of the Rector of St. John’s, Hackney. A school of industry was erected in Dalston-lane, by subscription, in 1837, for the reception of fifty girls, who are instructed by aid of voluntary contributions; and in Oct. 1845, a building was opened as a German hospital by Prince George of Cambridge, and Chevalier Bunsen, the Prussian ambassador.
