Berse Drelincourt Church was founded and endowed in 1742 by Mary Drelincourt, widow of a Dean of Armagh, as a chapel in connection with a girls charity school which had been founded in 1719 and was subsequently endowed by Mrs Drelincourt, and her daughter, Lady Primerose. The church was extended in 1828, to accommodate family pews for Thomas Hayes of Gatewen Hall, and Thomas Fitzhugh of Plas Power; the original entrance, which had previously been in the centre of the S wall, was later blocked, probably when the SW porch was added in 1930. The church was re-seated in 1862 - the present pews may possibly be of this date.
