NOTES: A. W. N. Pugin won a limited competition in 1839 to design a large Roman Catholic church in Southwark for the growing Irish population of the area with, in addition, a house for four clergy, and schools for 300 boys and 200 girls. The church was designated a cathedral in 1852. In the 1880s the bishop wished to expand the number of priests at the cathedral and the schools were removed to a new site and the old site used for a new episcopal residence and a clergy house, also including a seminary and convent, which were built to the designs of Frederick A. Walters incorporating parts of PuginÔÇÖs original buildings.
