Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

St James' Church was erected by the Commissioners for Building New Churches and assigned a particular district in 1834 which became a separate parish in 1845. This comprised all that part of the parish of Enfield to the east of an imaginary line drawn 150 yards to the west of the London to Ware turnpike road. St Matthew, Ponders End was built as a chapel of ease to St James in 1877/8 and became a separate parish in 1899. St George's Mission Church, Enfield Wash, was in existence by 1886. It was replaced by a permanent church built 1900-1906 and was assigned a parish in 1901. When the Royal Small Arms Factory Chapel closed in 1921, it was replaced by the church of St Peter and St Paul, Enfield Lock, a chapel of ease to St James. A new church of St Peter and St Paul was consecrated in 1969 and assigned a parish.
