The clue to the answer is in the name of the sub-district. Christ Church
was built in 1825 by the Hardwick's (of "Euston Arch" fame). It is situated
on Bell Street, which is just a wee bit south of where your folks were
Devonshire Place was actually a part of Exeter Street (now Ashbridge
Street) which runs north-south between Church Street and
Ashmill Street (formerly Devonshire Street). Both of these places
are one street away from Lisson Grove.
However, there is another church (St.Paul) on the east side of Lisson
Grove. Both of these churches are on my 1862 map, but I am not able to
say if St.Paul's was in existence in 1838-41. HTH.
