All Hallows London Wall

"ALLHALLOWS, London-wall, the church of, stands a little westward of Broad-street in London-wall, whence it derives its second name. It is a rectory, the patronage of which was anciently in the prior and convent of the Holy Trinity, near Aldgate, who in 1335 presented it to Thomas Richer de Sanston. At the dissolution of religious houses in the reign of Henry VIII, this church, with the priory to which it belonged, was surrendered to the crown, in whose gift the advowson still remains. Its present rector is the Rev. Robert Nares, a canon residentiary of Litchfield, archdeacon of Stafford, and a prebendary of St. Paul's. He was instituted in 1817. It escaped the fire in 1666, but became latterly so ruinous that in 1765 the parishioners obtained an act of parliament to pull it down and rebuild it; which they did from the designs of the elder Mr. Dance, the (then) city architect." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]

The church was destroyed in 1666, rebuilt in 1765-7 by George Dance jnr.
