About Humphrey Weld, Knight

Thomas Colte owned Arnos Grove Estate until his death in 1584 when it was sold to Humphrey Weld, a Grocer of London, who later became The Lord Mayor of London. He lived at the Estate until his death in 1610, when his son John Weld took over the estate and built the Weld Chapel in 1615. Although a private family chapel, it was used by the local people, whose nearest church was All Saints Church in Church Street, Edmonton. 93
