The Bishop of London was held to exercise responsibility for Anglican churches overseas where no other bishop had been appointed. He retained responsibility for churches in northern and central Europe until 1980, but his jurisdiction in southern Europe ceased in 1842 on the creation of the diocese of Gibraltar. In 1980, the Bishop of London divested himself of all overseas jurisdiction and a new diocese of 'Gibraltar in Europe' was established.
The chaplaincy at Parame was founded in 1892 to serve a growing colony of English speakers settled there for the health benefits. In 1897 the chaplaincy at Saint Malo merged with that of Parame. The Saint Malo chaplaincy had been established in 1859 to meet the spiritual needs of British sailors using that port.
