    In the post above, the building with the circular feature was originally a circus - Jones Ampitheatre, as shown in this 1786 listing of Amusements from the London Advisor & Guide.

    Feats of Horsemanship, trick-riding clowns, a human pyramid, the English Hercules, trapeze and high wire acts. Jones closed for business in 1788. Astley's at the foot of Westminster Bridge, Lambeth was a successful venue, continuing to 1893.

          Hello Roy, if you are still around ... many apologies, I only just saw you posting TODAY. I don't log in here very frequently and there are so many threads, that I am sorry to say that I do miss some postings.

          So, a belated THANK YOU for posting this. As you may have guessed, I am the sort of researcher that wants to know everything connected with whatever I am writing about, so it's very kind of you to research that and post it for me. Father Joseph Verres was the man who conducted their marriage, BTW.

          Do forgive me for the delay in responding!

          Regards

          Helena

              • Goodness me, no, it was a press cutting regarding St Boniface church.
