Dunk Street was in the Metropolitan Borough of
Stepney (established 1900) within the County of London (established
1889), both of which entities were abolished in 1965.
Dunk Street was also
within the civil parish of Mile End New Town (established 1866), which was in the former County of Middlesex until 1889,
and which, from 1856 to
1900, was a constituent of the Whitechapel District.
The civil parish of
Mile End New Town was abolished in 1921, being absorbed
into the civil parish of Whitechapel, which itself was abolished in 1927
to be absorbed into Stepney Borough parish (until that parish's
abolition in 1965).
