Queen Street Chapel

Recommended Posts

Thought Queen Street Chapel deserved its own heading. 

Under the heading Sovreign House, Queen Street as to the origin of Queen Street Foundry, Queen Street, Edmund posted:

On 20th June 1783 a 99 year lease at a rent of £5 2s per annum was granted by the Church Burgesses to Thomas Vennor, gentleman and John Read, merchant.  On this land in Wade's Orchard, a chapel was built, and opened on 3rd December 1783. It was in a new road which was not yet officially named - it was to be either Fig street or Queen street - the latter prevailed and the chapel became Queen street Chapel.  At this time George III was monarch and his queen was Charlotte-Sophia of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.  Luckily we are left with Queen Street, rather than Mecklenburg-Strelitz Street.
