The church dedicated to St. Thomas, in Parklane, built under the authority of an act passed in the 21st of George II., and consecrated in 1750, is a handsome edifice in the Grecian style, with a tower formerly surmounted by a very lofty spire, which was taken down in 1822, and replaced subsequently by a new steeple. The living is in the patronage of Trustees; income for the chaplain, £220, exclusively of £80 from pew-rents and £39 from Queen Anne's Bounty; income for lecturer, £165, exclusively of £45 from pew-rents. This chapel stood within the civil parish of St Peter and Nicholas Liverpool.
