St Clement East-Cheap

Primary tabs

"ST. CLEMENT'S EASTCHEAP, The church of, is situated on the east side of St. Clement's-lane, which forms the western extremity of Eastcheap. This church is dedicated to the same saint and pope as the last, and derives its addition from its situation. . . The ancient church was burned down in 1666, and the present erected by Sir Christopher Wren in 1686. It is a neat, plain and appropriate but unpretending building, of the Composite order, with a square tower and a balustrade. The interior is well arranged and neatly pewed, is sixty-four feet in length, forty feet in breadth, and thirty-four in height. It is a rectory, and the living was considerably augmented by having the neighbouring parish of St. Martin Orgar united to it by an act of parliament, after the fire of London. The parish church of St. Martin Orgar stood on the east side of St. Martin's-lane, Cannon-street, and was so designated from its dedication to St. Martin, and from one Ordgarus, who is generally supposed to have been the founder. . . The present rector of these united parishes is the Rev. William Johnson, who was instituted by the Bishop of London in 1820.." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]

This parish - no. 61 in the above map - is located in Candlewick Ward.
The church was destroyed in 1666, rebuilt by Wren 1683-7.
