Whitechapel, St Mary Matfelon in Whitechapel Road, Stepney, Middlesex, was created out of Stepney Parish in 1323. The church was bomb damaged during WW2 in 1940, demolished in 1952 and not rebuilt. The church site and its graveyard is now a public park named Altab Ali, located on the south side of the road, now part of the A11. All that remains is the outline of the church on the ground. Matfelon was the name of the family who sponsored the first chapel which had white walls, thus giving the name of Whitechapel to the area.

In Stepney there were nine hamlets/parishes. The county was known as Middlesex until 1890 when it became the new County of London. The Stepney parishes became part of the Metropolitan Boroughs in 1900 and in 1965 these boroughs became part of the new London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
East of London Family History Society has maps and history of Tower Hamlets. Most records are held at the London Metropolitan Archives, including the burial registers (1841-1966) for City of London and Tower Hamlets (also known as Bow Cemetery)
