Branch Projects

• Chapels Project

BoroughCharing Cross RoadTabernaclSt BenetJewin

Our current project is to locate the records of the more than 50 Welsh chapels and churches which once existed in London, and to transcribe those which are likely to be of interest to family historians.

We have recently completed indexing baptisms at Jewin Welsh Chapel. These are available on CD.

Volume 1 - Jewin Welsh Church baptisms, 1837 to 1920 (LBWFHS2)

Jewin Welsh Chapel (Calvinistic Methodist)

The first Welsh chapel in London was built at Wilderness Row, east of Clerkenwell Green, EC1, moving in 1828 to Jewin Crescent. Rebuilt following wartime bombing at Fann Street (EC1Y 0SA), the chapel is now known as Jewin Welsh Church.

The information on this CD covers baptisms for the period 1837 to 1920.


• Welsh soldiers in the East India Company Army

Members of the branch have transcribed an Index of Welsh soldiers in the East India Company Army. This is available for purchase, on microfiche, from the Glamorgan Family History Society.

An index to the names of some 4,000 people in Welsh parishes who gave their contributions towards the rebuilding of St Paul’s Cathedral in London c. 1678. The CD includes a transcription of each parish and township folio, with sums paid, and indexes of the first name and last name of contributors.
