Chapel of Ease
« on: Tuesday 31 October 17 00:09 GMT (UK) »
I have found my ancestor's marriage at the Chapel of Ease, Glasgow. The chapel was on North Albion Street but I am not sure which parish it was in. Can anyone help, it might give me a clue as ro which part of Glasgow she was from.

What was the date of the marriage, and what exactly is the source of the information you have?

Many parishes had chapels of ease. These were erected to serve remote places where the parish church was many miles away, or in urban areas where there was a large population and the parish church was not coping or not reaching all of its potential congregation.

Now Albion Street, formerly North & South Albion Streets, just west of the High Street so the old City Parish. There was a United Presbyterian Church thereabouts but a Chapel of Ease?

On this map 1892-4 it is marked as Greyfriar's U.P. Church, on North Albion Street. http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=18&lat=55.8602&lon=-4.2442&layers=81&b=1
There is no other chapel marked.

That must be it Stan, long gone, one of the many flavours of Presbyterianism!  ;D

Thank you everyone for your interest. The marriage took place 14 Mar 1800 between James Oldknow and Margret Dunn. The minister was John McCleod.I found a reference to John McCleod in an obituary, (not his) which stated he was minister of a Chapel of Ease on North Albion Street.I then found a map of old Glasgow on line which had Chapel of Ease marked.The Chapel was just north of Canon St. and east of the burying grounds of the North West Church. There was another chapel on North Albion St. a bit further north.I think it was in Barony but I am not sure.

You can see the Chapel of Ease on this 1778 map http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=18&lat=55.8599&lon=-4.2441&layers=126160581&b=1
Before Albion Street was there.

I think this is more likely the Chapel of Ease you were looking for as the Greyfriars Church further up Albion Street was not opened until 1821 (although it was built partially on the site of an old monastery - thought to have been one used by the Greyfriars order)

The Fastii contains information that this Chapel was built in 1764 for a Relief Church congregation which became part of the Church of Scotland in May 1774
