Historical records

1769HistoryLady Huntingdons ChapelColbran's Tunbridge Wells

The Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel is situated at the entrance of the town from the metropolis. It is a neat wooden edifice - one small portion only being finished with tiles. It was built [in 1769] by Selina, Countess of Huntingdon, a descendant of the house of Shirley. She was the daughter of Washington, Earl Ferrers, and was born August 24, 1707. She was married to Theophilus, Earl of Huntingdon, 3rd June, 1728. On his demise he left her the entire management of her children and their fortunes, which she improved with the greatest fidelity. Lady Huntingdon's person. endowments, and spirit, were all uncommon. She was rather above the middle size; her presence noble, and commanding respect; her address singularly engaging; her intelligence acute; her diligence indefatigable; and the constant labour of her correspondence scarcely conceivable. During forty-five years of widowhood, she devoted time, talents, and property to the support of the diffusion of the gospel.
