Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1615 Sir John Weld of Southgate erected a small chapel on his own land for the use of his family and local people. It was consecrated in 1615 on condition that all users took Easter communion at All Saints church and that the vicar of Edmonton should consent to baptisms and marriages there. The chapel was assigned a district chapelry in Southgate in 1851. The chapel was demolished in 1862 and replaced in 1863 by Christ Church, Southgate. The new church was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Decorated style and contains stained glass windows designed by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones.
