Garrat  Surrey

 

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

GARRAT, a hamlet in the north-western neighbourhood of Tooting, in Surrey; on the river Wandle, adjacent to the Southwestern railway, 2 miles S of Wandsworth. It has a post office under Tooting, London, SW. A mock election occurred here at each new parliament till 1796; and this gave rise to Foote's farce of the "Mayor of Garratt."
