Brief Description

History

Until 1978 Noak Hill was part of the Romford parish of St Edward, and still remains a rural area set in farmland. The church was built in 1841 as St Thomas's Chapel of Ease at the behest of Lady Frances Neave of Dagnam Park, as a closer place of worship for herself and household. Her husband was Sir Thomas Neave, Governor of the Bank of England, whose family had owned land in the area since 1788.
