Welcome to the parishregister December newsletter. Well, I better get in the spirit of things and wish you all a happy Christmas and all the best for 2010. This month has been a bit of a mixed bag really, the low being an early Christmas present I really didn't appreciate, and the high being one I did. I'll elaborate more at the end. So, this month we've got another new CD out, St Dunstan Stepney, and you've got the chance to save a tenner by pre-ordering compendium 6.

The charity was founded as the Royal Watermen's and Lightermen's Asylum by Mr John Dudin Brown by deed dated 9 March 1839. Built as 48 dwellings in 1840,designed by George Porter, the first stone was laid by Alderman Lucus on 16th May 1840.
