All Hallows Staining

"ALLHALLOWS STAINING, the church of, is situated near the eastern extremity of Langbourn Ward, on the west side, and near to the north end of Mark-lane, within four houses of Fenchurch-street. It is believed to be of Saxon origin from its cognomen Stane, corruptly Staining, the Saxon word for stone, probably to distinguish it from some other that was of wood. It is mentioned as early 1329, when Edward Camel was its incumbent. It was anciently a rectory, under the patronage of the De Walthams, till 1365, when Simon, Bishop of London, presented it to the abbot and convent of De Grace, near the Tower." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
