"A Greek Church in Old London" article - New York Times, July 31, 1898

---------- In 1676 one Joseph Georgeirenes, Archbishop of Samos, came to London to obtain assistance in publishing a book of devotions for the use of the Orthodox community.  He found his compatriots at the west end of London without a church, and on his application Compton, Bishop of London, gave him a piece of ground in Soho Fields on which to build one.  The Bishop’s name, by the way, is still preserved in that of the adjacent Compton Street, as also, in Frith Street, is the name of one Mr. Frith, who acted for his Lordship in the matter.  Georgeirenes succeeded in collecting some 1,500 pounds, and the church was ultimately built.  It was dedicated to St. Mary the virgin, and over its door was placed a stone incised inscription, which exists, in excellent preservation, to this day.  It is in rather fantastic modern Greek characters, impossible to reproduce in type, and has been…
