St Bartholomew by the Royal Exchange

"ST. BARTHOLOMEW, BY THE EXCHANGE, the church of, is situated at the south east corner of Bartholomew-lane and Threadneedle-street, near the north-east angle of the Bank of England. It was destroyed by the fire in 1666, all but the tower, which was cased and newly topped at the time of rebuilding the body of the church. This church is of very ancient foundation, for in the year 1331 John de Tyerne was presented to it, on the death of John de Aldeburgh, the rector, and it was then so entirely decayed that it was necessary to rebuild it. The living being at the time of the Reformation in the gift of the Abbey of St. Mary de Grace, it fell on the dissolution of the religious houses into the hands of the Crown, in whom the advowson, which is a rectory, has continued to the present time. The present rector is the Rev. George Shephard, D.D., preacher of Gray's-inn, who was instituted by the Lord Chancellor in 1807." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
