Parish History

FROME, or Frome-Selwood (Christ Church) was built as a chapelry in the ancient or mother parish, St. John the Baptist, and lying in the market-town, parish, and borough, east division of Somerset, 25 miles (N. E.) from Ilchester, and 105 miles ( W. by S. ) from London. Christ-Church, was erected in 1818. Two other chapelries, built in this place--one called Holy Trinity, built in 1838 and one in 1863, called St Mary's at Innox Hill as chapels of ease to St John's ancient parish. There were places of worship for Baptists, the Society of Friends, Independents, Wesleyans, Primitive Methodists, and Presbyterians. The poor law union of Frome comprises 29 parishes or places.[1]
