28th October 1761

St. Simon & St. Jude the Bishop of London was enthroned and installed Bishop of London at St Palls Cathedrill by Dr J Taylor LLD which Ceremony I see performed myself. his name is Dr Thos Hayter.

Dr Hayter was Bishop of Norwich before he moved to London, while he was there he started the project which became the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. He seems to be the only Bishop of either London or Norwich who doesn't have a portrait on the web! I'll have to do some RL research

This is bit dull so here is a contemporary view of St Paul's.


  1. Some rather good historical stuff on display inside the N&N at Norwich

  2. I don't visit Norwich often, Justin, but next time I shall try to visit the hospital to see the display. Thank you for the information.
