Marriage of James Hunt and Ada Spencer at the Catholic Chapel, Loughborough.
The history webpage for St. Mary’s Loughborough describes that not long before this in 1834, Loughborough was still suffering anti-Catholic sentiment. Between 1834-1839 it says there were 63 baptisms in the town (presumably both child and adult) and so it was a growing community.
