1820 Settler Places in Britain and Éire

In many cases, particularly in cities like London and Bristol, many buildings with settler ties no longer exist. In such cases I have tried to include historical pictures where possible, and where I have not been able to take pictures myself I have added pictures from, which can be used under a Creative Commons Licence. Where the photographer’s name appears as a clickable link followed by a CC BY-SA 2.0 reference, the original photo can be viewed together with other photographs of the surrounding area.

The pictures are currently arranged by county for England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, with separate sections for the cities of Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Nottingham. London has been further sub-divided into Boroughs so as not to have too many pictures in one file. The pictures appear as small icons with a brief title. Clicking on them will reveal a larger picture with text explaining the link to one or more settlers and a credit to the photographer. Clicking on the + sign will further enlarge the picture to full screen (ESCape to exit full screen), and the photographs can all be downloaded from the site.

St.Mary, Whitechapel (Altab Ali Park)

10th April 2008

Altab Ali Park, Whitechapel, the site of the original Church of St.Mary Matfelon, usually known as St.Mary's Whitechapel. A picture of the original church can be seen here. A new church was opened in 1877, which was ravaged by fire in 1880, and after further damage during WW2 the church was demolished in 1952. Joseph DALE and Caroline PAWLE (parents of the settler Christopher DALE) were married in St.Mary's, as were John Henry HEATH and Maria Iveson SKARRATT, Robert HENMAN and Mary Ann LIVING, James LEPPAN and Ann WHITE (parents of the settler James LEPPAN), Archibald McKENZIE and Amelia CHAPMAN and John PULLEN and Ann TINDALL (parents of the settler Thomas PULLEN). The children of Matthew DOLD were baptised in St.Mary's, as were the children of Thomas and Sarah GRIFFIN, Charles HAW (son of Simon HAW and Alice Margaret PENN) and two children of Richard and Elizabeth WEBB.
