The foundation stone of Christ Church was laid on 28 May 1830, and the church consecrated on 4 November 1831. Hugh Stowell was its first incumbent and he was later buried there, 13 October 1865. A District was assigned from the parish of Manchester, by Bishops Instruments, 17 October 1832 and 7 November 1842. By Order in Council, 6 July 1846, (London Gazette, 17 July 1846), part was transferred to St. Paul's Paddington.
