Balls Pond  Middlesex


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Balls Pond like this:

BALL'S POND, a suburban tract in Islington parish, London; on the North London railway, near the New river, 2½ miles N of St. Paul's. The cattle market of 15 acres, projected by Perkins, is here. B. Pond is a chapelry, constituted in 1830; a vicarage in the diocese of London; of the value of £420, in the patronage of Trustees. ...

The church is in the pointed style, and was designed by Barry. A chapel in Gloucester-road is under the vicar; and two churches in Essex-road and Mildmay park are served by other vicars, each with income of £400, and both appointed by the vicar of B. Pond.
