In the eighteenth century the few Catholics of the district were attended by the chaplains of the Dukes of Norfolk, who possess much property in the neighbourhood. .... The present mission dates from 1871, when an unpretentious chapel opened in Coldharbour Lane. Schools were inaugurated March 1877, about which time the chapel was redecorated. The present church in the thirteenth century style of Gothic was opened June 26, 1895, and is in memory of Mina Duchess of Norfolk. The accommodation is for 500. Mr. F. A. Walters, [was the] architect.
