St. Dionyse, or Dionis, commonly called Dionis Back Church, because it stands back from the forepart of the Street. It is dedicated to St. Dennis or Dionysius, the Areopagite, who suffered Martyredom in France, by being beheaded under Decius or Dioclesian, and therefore he is made the Champion or Patron of that Nation. This Parish contains 150 Dwelling Houses. Morning Pr. daily at 8 in Summer, and 9 in Winter; Evening Pr. at 5 constantly.
