Jesus Chapel -
St Mary Extra
(formerly listed as
SU 41 SW 10/188 Church of St Mary Extra)


This was built as Jesus Chapel in 1620 to serve that part of the old Parish
of St Mary, Southampton ('St Mary Extra') which lay across the Itchen. It
was the first church to be consecrated in Southampton after the Reformation.
Built of rubble, the only part of the original building remaining is the centre
west gable having diagonal buttresses a dressed coping crowned by a small
gabled bell turret, rectangular opening and one bell. On the south return
wall of the gable is an early C17 stone mullioned window with a rectangular
head and pointed arched lights. In 1822 a west porch and south transept were
added in ashlar by E. Burrough and J. Ede. The windows are flat-headed Neo-Tudor.
In 1846 a north aisle was added, in 1866 an east aisle, and a new chancel
and south chapel in 1883. The church is plain inside and retains complete
its early C19 plain panelled oak pews. Early C19 wall monuments.
