SURREY, an inland county; bounded, on the NW, by Berkshire on the N, by Buckinghamshire and Middlesex; on the E, by Kent; on the S, by Sussex; on the W, by Hampshire

The ancient county of Surrey extended as far north as the Thames and as far east as Rotherhithe until 1889 when the County of London was created. With the formation of the County of London the parishes of Deptford St. Paul, Wandsworth, Putney, Southwark, Bermondsey, Newington, Rotherhithe, Battersea, Clapham, Lambeth, Camberwell, Streatham, and Tooting Graveney, the areas that now form the modern London boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth, were transferred from Surrey to the new Metropolitan Boroughs. Also in 1889, Croydon was made into a county borough and became a London borough in 1965.
