In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Abney Park like this:
ABNEY-PARK, a suburb of London, 3½ miles N of St. Paul's. It has a post office under Stoke-Newington, London N. A mansion on its site was the seat of Sir Thomas Abney and the residence of Dr. Watts; and a cemetery now here has a chapel in the centre, and contains a monument to Dr. Watts.
The location is that of Abney Park cemetery. Additional information about this locality is available for Stoke Newington
