Records of St. Stephen's Parish Church, Huntsman's Corner, Maidstone Road, Chatham 1932-

[To view a full list of the St. Stephen's records, please click here]

Historical note

The present St. Stephen’s parish was formed out of St. John’s parish, Chatham in 1959.

Active planning for a church hall to serve the southern portion of St. John’s parish, Chatham seems to have begun in 1932 (see File P85E/8C/1). This culminated in the Wallace Road Church Hall in 1935, which functioned as a mission hall in St. John’s parish until 1938, when the hall became a District Church serving an ecclesiastical district within St. John’s parish and known as St. Stephen’s Church.

The present St. Stephen’s Church was built at Huntsman’s Corner in 1959 when the ecclesiastical district became a parish in its own right.

NB St. Alban’s Church, Bluebell Hill, Chatham, formed in 1931 was transferred from Aylesford parish to St. Stephen’s parish c.1959 and then to the new parish of Holy Trinity, Chatham in 1997. St. Alban’s Church records including separate baptism and marriage registers are undeposited at the time of writing (March 1994)
