    My 3rd great grandparents were married at ST Pancras Old Church on 14 Nov 1832. They were Henry Smith and Susan Peacock. Henry died in 1847 about and I don’t know when Susan died. They had 7 children. The eldest was George Henry Smith born 1833. He was baptised at St Pancras on 28 July 1833. He came to Australia in 1852 and there are many descendants from him. Henry Smith was a wine cooper and a freeman of London. That is all I have of him and Susan Peacock. It is so interesting to read about St Pancras Old Church.

    August 2013 I had the joy of traveling to London (from my home in Idaho) where I made a visit to St. Pancras Old Church. My fifth great grandfather, Rev. Weldon Champneys, was a vicar here in the late 18th century and married two sons at this church. Weldon died in the parish. His son, Rev. John Weldon Champneys also became a vicar at St. Pancras (and was buried in the churchyard), and another son of Weldon’s, Rev. William Betton Champneys, also served at the vicarage. William Betton christened three sons at this church. Later William Betton’s son Rev. William Weldon Champneys was a vicar here also. It seemed to be a place they sent clergymen who were old and tired. It is a beautiful, serene area and a nice place to spend one’s later years. The Champneys family legacy of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ has continued to my day.

    Hello there, I wonder if you can tell me if the headstone for my 7 times GGrandfather Richard Wilson, is still at your church. I know he was buried there, possibly with his wife Ann. He was buried there in 1778, I have the info from the archives, but would like to know if anything remains for me to actually see. Many thanks, Julie Wilson

      I am afraid all of our records are held at the London Metropolitan archives – I’m sure they would be able to help you there. Unfortunately, very little of the burial grounds are left, so it is unlikely that you would be able to identify the headstone. Do let us know if anything comes up!

    George HOOKER of Great Gaddesden HERTS (his father was Thomas Hooker, farmer) married Eliza JARMAN of St Pancras, Middlesex (her father was James Jarman (dec.)) on 3 July 1847 at St Pancras Church (Old Church), Parish of St Pancras, County of Middlesex. George could sign his name but Eliza marked with an X. I have a photocopy of this marriage record but it is pretty hard to understand the writing. One of their children, Mary Hooker born 1850, is my Great-Grandmother. Since the church was extensively restored in 1847, I wonder if they married before the major rebuilding took place or just after. When was the church officially re-dedicated? From Eileen Cameron in Proserpine, Queensland, Australia.
