Everton (Christ Church), Great Homer Street was created a '''chapelry''' in 1848 from [[Walton on the Hill St Mary, Lancashire]] Ancient Parish. The church was destroyed in May 1941 bombing. Services continued in a Mission Hall, until the parish amalgamated with St Chad-with-Christ Everton in 1948. This church closed in 1971 when the parish was amalgamated with St George Heyworth Street.<ref>Samuel A. Lewis, [http://british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=50952#s12 ''A Topographical Dictionary of England]'' (1848), pp. 191-195. Date accessed: 12 August 2013.</ref>

Everton is an inner city area located just north of Liverpool city centre, with Vauxhall to the west, Kirkdale to the north and Anfield to the north east. The Liverpool entrance to the Kingsway Tunnel is located near the boundaries of this area.<br>
 +
 
 +
Everton is an ancient settlement and like Liverpool, was one of the six un-named berewicks of West Derby. Until the late 18th century Everton was a small rural parish of Walton-on-the-Hill, but the rise in wealth of nearby Liverpool pushed wealthier merchants further afield to live. By the early 19th century however an increase in slums and demand for housing saw Everton began to be built up and in 1835, Everton became part of Liverpool.
 +
 
 +
Along with neighbouring Vauxhall, Everton traditionally housed the city's Irish, Italian and Polish immigrants. Everton was to be the original site for the building of the Metropolitan Cathedral on St.Domingo road but this was abandoned because of financial constraints. The Cathedral was eventually located in the city centre close to the southern edge of Everton.

Chapel History

Everton (Christ Church), Great Homer Street was created a chapelry in 1848 from Walton on the Hill St Mary, Lancashire Ancient Parish. The church was destroyed in May 1941 bombing. Services continued in a Mission Hall, until the parish amalgamated with St Chad-with-Christ Everton in 1948. This church closed in 1971 when the parish was amalgamated with St George Heyworth Street.[1]

Everton is an inner city area located just north of Liverpool city centre, with Vauxhall to the west, Kirkdale to the north and Anfield to the north east. The Liverpool entrance to the Kingsway Tunnel is located near the boundaries of this area.

Everton is an ancient settlement and like Liverpool, was one of the six un-named berewicks of West Derby. Until the late 18th century Everton was a small rural parish of Walton-on-the-Hill, but the rise in wealth of nearby Liverpool pushed wealthier merchants further afield to live. By the early 19th century however an increase in slums and demand for housing saw Everton began to be built up and in 1835, Everton became part of Liverpool.

Along with neighbouring Vauxhall, Everton traditionally housed the city's Irish, Italian and Polish immigrants. Everton was to be the original site for the building of the Metropolitan Cathedral on St.Domingo road but this was abandoned because of financial constraints. The Cathedral was eventually located in the city centre close to the southern edge of Everton.
