Level of description: Collection
Extent: 4.9 linear metres
Name of creator(s): Parish of St John of Jerusalem, Hackney | Church of England
The Chapel of Saint John of Jerusalem, a chapel of ease in the ancient parish of Hackney, was built in 1806 on land which later became the site of Saint Andrew's Mission Room in Well Street. In 1835 it was assigned as the Parish Church of South Hackney. The present church of Saint John of Jerusalem was substituted for it and was consecrated in July 1848. The church has this dedication as the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem held large possessions of land in the parish in medieval times.
South Hackney Parochial Schools were established by Deed of Settlement of 31 March 1834. Girls and Infant Schools were added to the boys school and later combined as a Mixed and Infant School. In 1939 the school was reorganised into a Junior Mixed and Infant School. The school premises were destroyed in the Second World War. A new building was built on the site and reopened in the autumn of 1956. It was renamed Saint John of Jerusalem Church of England Primary School and continues to date in Ainsworth Road, Well Street.
