Parish History[edit | edit source]

In the early years of the 17th century, Southgate was a hamlet. There was also a large estate with a house called “Arnolds” which, in 1610, Sir John and Lady Weld bought. Southgate was one of the four wards in the parish of All Saints, Edmonton.

Sir John, therefore, sought a faculty from the bishop to build a chapel at his expense and in his grounds. This was originally intended for the use of Sir John, his family and servants but it became the place of worship for the people of Southgate. It was a Chapel of Ease to All Saints.

In 1615 the building of the Weld Chapel began. It was a wooden structure, enlarged and altered several times to accommodate the growing population of Southgate and it lasted until 1862 by which time there were several imposing houses and estates in the area owned by wealthy merchants: the Walkers, the Taylors, and the earlier Sir John Weld were all brewers. It was felt that a larger more imposing church would be more suitable for such a population. So, in February 1860, a faculty was obtained from the Bishop of London to build a new church just eastward of the Weld Chapel.[1]

Edmonton Weld Chapel in Southgate was built by about 1616, in or near The Green.

Due to population increases ,a larger chapel was built by around 1869, called Christ Church, which took the place of Weld Chapel which see under "Edmonton". Church registers exist for this old chapel, commencing from 1695 to 1850.

The Weld Chapel includes an excellent historical perspective.
