NEWARK, a town, a parish, a sub-district, a district, and a hundred, in Notts. The town stands on a level tract, on the Fosse way, on the river Devon. It is supposed to have been founded at the site of the Roman Ad Pontem, by the ancient British Coritani. The parish contains Sconce-Hill, and Greenfield. The living of St. Mary is a vicarage, and that of Christ church is a p. curacy, in the diocese of Lincoln.[1]

Additional information:

The initial Ecclesiastical Parish of Christ Church was formed on a district church at Lombard Street Newark to offer relief to the Ancient parish Newark on Trent, Nottinghamshire St Mary Magdalene. The Ecclesisatical parish was formed in 1847, 10 years after the consecration of the church by the Archbishop of York on 7 August 1837.

The present church of Christ Church was originally St Andrew's Mission Church at the site off Boundary Road. The foundation stone of the present church was laid in December 1956, and the church was dedicated by the Lord Bishop of Southwell in March 1958.
