In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Yiewsley like this:
Yewsley (or Yiewsley), eccl. dist. and vil., Hillingdon par., Middlesex, 24 miles S. of Uxbridge, pop. 2279; P.O., called Yiewsley.
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 Yiewsley has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Hillingdon. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Yiewsley and units named after it.
