In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Hoxton like this:
Hoxton, district of London, partly in Hackney and St Luke pars., but chiefly in Shoreditch par., Middlesex, pop. 47,489.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Hoxton has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Hackney. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Hoxton and units named after it.
