Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Bishop of London was held to exercise responsibility for Anglican churches overseas where no other bishop had been appointed. He retained responsibility for churches in northern and central Europe until 1980, but his jurisdiction in southern Europe ceased in 1842 on the creation of the diocese of Gibraltar. In 1980, the Bishop of London divested himself of all overseas jurisdiction and a new diocese of 'Gibraltar in Europe' was established.

The town of Hughesovka grew up around a metallurgical plant established in the south Ukraine region of Russia in 1868 by John Hughes, a Welsh engineer. Hughes and his family moved to Russia to oversee the works and employed many Welsh specialists as well as local labourers. Since 1961 the town has been called Donetsk and is in the Ukraine.
