Jim was kind enough to find and send me the following information on a
number of churches in the Central London area.

It includes the church that David hadn’t heard of. So I copy it to the list
in case others might find the information of interest.

I fear it is no longer in use, tho' the building may have found another use.
It is probably the chapel shown on the north side of Pimlico Road on the
Godfrey Maps. I suspect it was either a chapel of ease to St. Barnabas
(which is still in use) or a proprietary chapel in the parish. Westnminster
City Archives should have the answer.
If your info comes from a Baptism or marriage entry, it would be helpful to
know date and the full description of the church as recorded therein. I do
not think it was ever a separate parish.
Below is my list which may help if you have Westminster interests.
This list is a little updated! as always, I am grateful for corrections.
Here is a list of all the Anglican churches of Westminster in 1890, with
dates of the parish formation if known.
Original registers if not still with church are mostly deposited in the
Westminster City Archives in St.Anne Street, but some and BTs are in the
I've tried to comment about their
IGI status, but if you go to www.familysearch.org and Browse > Browse
Library Catalogue > Placename Search [enter Westminster and select
Westminster, Middlesex] > Church Records and Church Records-Indexes, you
will see a list of all the LDS film holdings.
Batch numbers are at this site
Some churches may appear on the BVRI rather than the IGI.
If on the IGI or BVRI then the LDS has a film of the registers.[which may
not be complete]. For locations see street and map sites list at end.
The City of Westminster, seat of national government since before the
Conquest in 1066, has a chequered history of local government. Besides
conventional ecclesiastical parishes which became convenient units of local
administration (civil parishes and vestries), there were a number of
liberties, peculiars and extra-parochial places. Also the bondary went to
within a few hundred yards of the parish church of neighbouring Kensington.
In 1890 Westminster became part of the new County of London, and in 1900
the parishes below part of the the City Of Westminster ( a Metropolitan
Borough). When London Boroughs were formed in 1964, Paddington and
Marylebone were added to the City of Westminster.
In this list the first church in each group is the parent parish. You will
see that for the most part only these were in existence in 1812.
