The London Meeting Room is considered one of four of the oldest, continuously meeting, Darbyite assemblies in all of Ontario, Canada, alongside the Ottawa Meeting Room, ON, the St. Thomas Meeting Room, ON and the Smiths Falls Meeting Room. Each is known to have existed in 1878, if not earlier. All four of these assemblies broke from Raven in 1909 to help form the Tunbridge Wells branch which is arguably the most populous branch of the closed brethren in North America.
