William of Hulstbosch (1434-1485) belonged to a family of farmers who had lived in Boondael for a long time. He had a small chapel built in Boondael, at the place called “Borrestichele”. It was enlarged in 1474 so that it could accommodate more people.

At the end of the 15th century, the chapel became the property of the Oath of the Arquebusiers of Brussels.

Like all the houses in the hamlet, it was damaged twice during the Wars of Religion and was restored each time. Enlarged in 1658, the old sanctuary was completely rebuilt in 1842 by Petrus Vandenbranden and his assistants. A diamond-shaped plaque on the façade mentions the main changes that had taken place: “Aedif 1463” (year of the first construction), “Auct 1658” (year of the enlargement) and “Reaedif 1842” (year of the construction of the present building).

The present chapel was the parish church of the hamlet until 1941, when the church of St Adrian was consecrated. Inside, the bricks laid at different times have been exposed and remineralized to prevent them from crumbling.
