Humphrey Gainsborough, brother of Thomas, became Minster of the Independent Chapel (now Christ Church URC) in Henley-on-Thames in 1748 at a time of rising non-conformist thinking.  He also used his inventive spirit and engineering skills in road, bridge and lock design for the benefit of his fellow man and the people of Henley in a myriad of ways.
