Administrative/Biographical history:

Trinity Presbyterian Church, Canonbury was situated on Church Road (later North Church Road), off Southgate Road. It originated as the Old Scots Church Meeting at Founders' Hall from 1672 and London Wall from 1764. The church moved to Islington in 1857 on the expiry of the London Wall lease. The Church and manse opened in 1858; a lecture hall was added in the 1880s. Numbers declined in the 1890s to almost nothing; although John Kerr Craig's ministry in 1899 to 1910 increased membership again. The church was closed between 1934 and 1942.
