Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The district of Saint Peter's was taken from the parish of Saint Matthew in 1843; while the church was constructed in 1840 in a Romanesque style. It was in bad repair by 1858 and needed works, being altered in 1891 and restored in 1905. The parish was united with Saint Thomas' (P72/TMS) and part of Saint Jude's (P72/JUD) in 1951.

From: 'Bethnal Green: List of Churches', A History of the County of Middlesex: Volume 11: Stepney, Bethnal Green (1998), pp. 217-226.
