Plaque: Huguenot fan makers


Fann Street
Huguenot fan makers settled here and the Worshipful Company of Fanmakers met in their Common Hall nearby and adopted their new constitution in the year 1710.

This plaque may correctly show where fan makers settled but their Hall was some distance away - see the blue plaque.

The memorial plaque is to the left of our photograph. The more central plaque gives the times of church services. Below it, near the ground, is what looks like a foundation plaque which reads:

Er gogoniant i Dduw gosodwyd y garreg hon Mawrth 31 1960 gan y gwir anrhydeddus arglwydd faer Llundain yr henadur Syr Edmund Stockdale ar achlysur ail-adeiladu’r capel a ddinistriwyd Medi 1940.  Duw sydd noddfa a nerth i ni (Salm XLVI).

With the help of an on-line translator we deduce that this church was destroyed in the war in 1940, was rebuilt and reopened on 31 March 1960 with this plaque being unveiled by Sir Edmund Stockdale (Lord Mayor in 1959).
