GRAYS INN LANE, two chapelries, and a sub-district, in St. Pancras parish and district, Middlesex. The chapelries are St. Bartholomew and St. Jude; they lie around Grays Inn Lane or Grays Inn Road, in London, about 1½ mile NW of St. Paul's; and the former was constituted in 1860, the latter, subsequently. ...

Value of St. B., £300; of St. J., £300. * Patrons of St. B., Trustees; of St. J., alternately the Crown and the Bishop. St. Jude's church was built in 1864, at a cost of £6, 000; is a brick structure, of nave, aisles, and deep chancel; and has a picturesque but foreinn looking facade, and a lofty tower.—The sub-district is bounded, on the N, by the Ne Road; on the W, by a line in front of the E of Burton Crescent; on other sides, by the parishes of Clerkenwell, St. Giles, and St. George Bloomsbury. Acres, 155. Pop., 27, 808. Houses, 2, 887.
