According to chatgpt - Farnborough was historically part of the county of Surrey. Farnborough was originally a small village in the northeastern corner of Surrey, near the borders of Kent and Greater London. However, in 1965, under the Local Government Act of 1963, the area was transferred from Surrey to Greater London, and it is now part of the London Borough of Bromley.
