Administrative/Biographical history:

Orange Street Congregational Chapel was bought from French Protestants by Thomas Hawkes in 1787 and converted into a Congregational chapel. The first minister was John Townsend, founder of the London Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb. A Sunday school at 36 St Martin's Street was registered in 1816. The Chapel was re-registered again by Congregationalists in 1861; and was still in use in 2009.
