From Diocese of Westminster: After 1840 "They planned a Catholic foundation in the parish and purchased, for £5,000, two and a half acres of land which had formerly been the Wellington Cricket Ground. This is now the Cadogan Street/Draycott Terrace site which contains the current Church together with St Joseph's Primary School, St Thomas More Language College and the St Joseph's Almshouses."

Apparently an oil painting of this generous couple hangs in the Rectory but disappointingly it has not yet found its way on to the web.
