Parish History

Birmingham St Bartholomew is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Warwickshire, created in 1847 from Birmingham St Martin, Warwickshire Ancient Parish.

Prior to the year 1715, Birmingham comprised only one parish, and for all civil purposes it is still so considered; but in its ecclesiastical arrangements it at present comprises the five parishes of St. Martin, St. Philip, St. George, St. Thomas, and All Saints. The living of St. Martin's is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £19. 3. 6½., and in the gift of Trustees; net income, £1048. The parochial church is an ancient structure in the decorated English style, with a square tower having pinnacles at the angles, and surmounted by a lofty and finely-proportioned spire, with the exception of which the whole building, originally of stone, was cased with red brick in 1690; the interior contains several monumental effigies, of some of which the details are finely executed.

From: 'Birkenshaw - Birmingham'.[1]
