In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Mortlake like this:
Mortlake, par. and large vil. with ry. sta., Surrey, on river Thames, 1½ mile NE. of Richmond and 8½ miles SW. of Waterloo sta., London, 1883 ac., pop. 6330. Malting and brewing are considerable industries at Mortlake, which is famed as a boating resort. In the church and churchyard are interred Dr John Dee, the philosopher and astrologer, John Partridge, astrologer, and other notable personages.
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 Mortlake has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Richmond upon Thames. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Mortlake and units named after it.
