Further information about Roman Catholic Worship:

Meetings had to be licensed in the 18thC and early 19thC.

These licences can be found under Q/SB (i.e. Quarter Sessions for each year) -


Rev. Daniel Gaffey licensed a former warehouse of Mr Smith in Mansion Row as a temporary Roman Catholic chapel in 1795. He was from London and together with Henry Redmond of Brompton had to swear an oath as ministers for 'professing the Popish religion'.


Rev. Blinkitt of River Row, Brompton licensed a newly purpose-built chapel situated in a field to the back of Wood Street and opposite the Marine Garden for Roman Catholics in 1799.
