Parish History

'BLOOMSBURY, or St. George-Bloomsbury, was a parish, which in the 19th century was also a subdistrict, in the district of St. Giles, Middlesex. It lay about 1.25 of a mile west by northwest St. Paul Cathedral, London. According to the famous topographer, Samuel Lewis, St George-Bloomsbury lay originally in a part of St. Giles-in-the-Fields parish, but was consecrated a parish by 1729.

Christ Church in Woburn Square was built in the year 1833. In 1845 the French Episcopal Chapel, in Bloomsbury Street, was built. Bedford Chapel formerly of Charlotte Street was built in 1771.

'A Baptist chapel, was built adjacent to the parish church of St George, in 1848.'[1]
