Birmingham Churches

Burgums of what family tree lived here or nearby?

St Philip's Cathedral, Birmingham in spring BIRMINGHAM ST PHILIPS was built in the Baroque style when the nearby St Martin (in the Bull Ring) was deemed too small to house the rapidly growing population. Construction began in 1711 and it was consecrated in 1715 and served as a parish church until 1905 when it became acathedral for the newly formed Diocese of Birmingham.

The church was heavily bombed in 1940, but many of its windows and trasures had been removed to safety and were replaced when the church was restored in 1948.

The tower was not completed until 1725, while the urns on the parapet were added in 1756. The rectangular hall church interior has aisles separated from the nave by fluted pillars of classical form. Wooden galleries are stretched between the pillars in a manner typical of English Baroque churches.

There are tall windows on the outside interspaced by pilasters in low relief, supporting a balustrade at roof level. There is an urn rising above each pilaster. The western single tower rises in stages and is surmounted by a lead-covered dome and a delicate lantern. The building is generally of brick and is faced with stone quarried on the Archer's estate at Umberslade.

The chancel features stained glass, which later had much larger articulated strongly projecting Corinthian columns. Marbled surfaces enhance the columns and pilasters. The exterior of the building was refaced (1884-88) due to the softness of the original materials. The tower was also refaced in 1958-59.
BIRMINGHAM ST MARTINS was the original parish church for Birmingham, lying between the Bull Ring and the markets. There was originally a 13th century church here, but the existing is largely Victorian. Therewas a lofty nave and chancel, with north and south aisles, together with a north-west tower and spire. The spire was rebuilt in 1781 and then repaired again in 1801. A cladding of bricks around the church, added in 1690 was removed in 1853. The church was demolished in 1873 with only the tower and spire surviving.

John Burgum (JJ family tree), the ornamental painter, of Concord, New Hampshire, in the USA was baptised here at St Martins. Far right is a picture of how the church looked at the time of his baptism. John left Birmingham in 1850, age 24, and went to Boston. Click here for more on his story.
St Martin's Birmingham2 St Martin in the Bull Ring circa 1809
St Bartholomew's Chapel, BirminghamBIRMINGHAM ST BARTHOLOMEW'S CHURCH was built on the site of the former Roman Cathoolic Chapel and convent. It was opened as a chapel of ease to St Martin's Church in 1749.

It was increased in size in in 1840 and became a parish church itself in 1847. It was restored in 1893 at a cost of £800. The church was closed in 1937, was bombed during an air raid in 1942 and then demolished in 1943.
BIRMINGHAM ST MARK'S CHURCH was early Gothic and designed by architect George Gilbert Scott. However he later decided the church did not live up to his standards of accurate Gothic design, finally disowning it. The church was demolished in 1947.
