History

Hillingdon was an ancient parish, and had within it the chapelry of Uxbridge, which became a separate civil parish in 1866. In 1894, under the Local Government Act 1894, Hillingdon parish was divided into two: with Hillingdon West becoming, with Uxbridge, part of the Uxbridge Urban District, and Hillingdon East becoming part of the Uxbridge Rural District. Uxbridge Rural District was abolished in 1928, with the East parish being added to Uxbridge Urban District. Both East and West parishes were abolished in 1938 and added to Uxbridge parish.

The name was revived in 1965, under the London Government Act 1963 as the name of the western-most borough of Greater London.
