The constituency was created in 1885, as a
division of the parliamentary borough of Shoreditch in the East End of London. The area was administered as part of the Tower division of the county of Middlesex.
The division consisted of the Church,
Hoxton, Moorfields and Wenlock wards.
In 1889 there were administrative changes. The territory of the constituency was severed from Middlesex and included in the new
County of London. The lower tier of local government in the area continued to be administered by parish vestries and local boards of works.
In 1900 local government in London was rationalised. The
civil parish of St. Leonard, Shoreditch became part of a larger Metropolitan Borough of Shoreditch.
In the redistribution of parliamentary seats in 1918, the Metropolitan Borough of Shoreditch constituted a single parliamentary division of
Shoreditch. The Hoxton division was abolished.
