Parish History

'New Brentford St Laurence High Street (1570) was a chapelry within the parish of Hanwell and had the following chapels and district churches associated with it, including--St George's, High Street [an ancient curacy established in 1653], St Faith's, Windmill Road (?), and St Paul's St Paul's Road built in 1868.'


Here is an excerpt on a 19th century historical perspective by the famed topographer, Samuel Lewis:

'BRENTFORD, a market-town, and the head of a union; comprising Old Brentford, in the parish of Ealing, Kensington division of the hundred of Ossulstone, and New Brentford, in the parish of Hanwell, hundred of Elthorne, county of Middlesex.'[1]

There were places of worship built for Particular Baptists(2), Independents (2), a Primitive Methodist, a Wesleyan Methodist chapel and a Roman Catholic parish--all by 1870.
