Parish History

As far back as 1577, there are reports of recusants—Roman Catholics who refused to attend the Church of England—lodging in Islington, which was at that time separated from the city of London by open country. One priest was arrested for refusing to go to Church of England services in Islington in 1584, as attendance at Anglican services was obligatory at the time, and defiance physically punished.[1]

St John the Evangelist Hammersmith was a district church established in the 1860, lying within the civil parish of St Paul Hammersmith.
