Notes: The two parishes of Bow and Bromley-by-Bow in London's East End have a long and distinct history although they have struggled for identity. These parishes, linked as they are by industry and the River Lea, are located within the following geographical boundaries: Victoria Park to the north, River Lea to the east, Grove and Burdett Roads to the west and the Limehouse Cut to the south. The Limehouse Cut was created in 1770 to connect the Thames to the River Lea at Bromley-by-Bow.

Bow became a parish in its own right in 1719 and at that time was very much a rural retreat and remained that way throughout the 18th century. Bow's neighbour, Bromley-by-Bow, was originally known as the parish of Bromley St Leonard in reference to the priory and convent in the area. The area was known simply as Bromley, but confusion with Bromley in Kent led to postal services calling it Bromley-by-Bow.

Bow and Bromley-by-Bow parishes were absorbed into the Borough of Poplar in 1900. Poplar was one of three boroughs , along with Stepney and Bethnal Green, which became Tower Hamlets in 1965.
