All Hallows Lombard-street

"ALLHALLOWS, Lombard-street, the church of, is situate in Bell-alley, near the north corner of Lombard-street, in the ward of Langbourn. A church stood here dedicated to the same patrons before the year 1053. It is a rectory, and one of the thirteen peculiars within the city, appertaining to the see of Canterbury. The advowson appears to have been anciently in lay hands, as Brithmer, a wealthy citizen, with the approbation of Archbishop Stigand and Dean Goderic, gave it with a messuage adjoining to the cathedral church of Canterbury in the year 1503; by virtue of which donative it still remains in the gift of the dean and chapter of the Metropolitan Church. The present rector is the Rev. Walter Brown, a prebendary of Canterbury, who was instituted in 1810. It is a neat, plain, and like all Sir Christopher Wren's churches, a well proportioned edifice. The body is eighty-four feet in length, fifty-two in breadth and thirty in height." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
