  1. Merton

    Merton was an ancient parish in the Brixton hundred of Surrey, England. It was bounded by Wimbledon to the north, Mitcham to the east, Morden to the south and Kingston upon Thames to the west. The 1871 Ordnance Survey map records its area as 1,764.704 acres. The parish was centred around the 12th century parish church, St. Mary's in Merton Park. The parish had only nominal existence after 1907 when the Merton Parish Council was abolished and the parish formed the Merton Urban District. Merton contributed its name to the London Borough of Merton, although Merton itself is no longer a clearly defined area within the borough; and the parish was abolished on 1 April 1965 when Greater London was created.

Examples of Merton in a Sentence

  1. Pope Francis:

    Merton was above all a man of prayer, a thinker who challenged the certitudes of his time and opened new horizons for souls and for the church. He was also a man of dialogue, a promoter of peace between peoples and religions.

  2. Abbot James Wiseman Day:

    In a nutshell I think Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton clearly recognized that to be a faithful member of the church, it includes and even requires being concerned with issues that go beyond the church door, it's not only possible, but also proper, for a Catholic or a member of any other religious tradition to be concerned with justice, peace in the world, understanding of other faiths and concern for the environment. [Pope Francis] is putting on record that what he’s doing is not all that new.
