St Gregory by St Paul

"St. Gregrory by St. Paul's was situated on the south side of St. Paul's, near the west end, in the ward of Castle Baynard. The date of its foundation is not known, but it is said that the body of Edmund, King of the East Angles, who was put to death by the Danes in 870, rested here for three years. It was burnt down by the Great Fire and not rebuilt, its parish being annexed to that of St. Mary Magdalene, Old Fish Street. The earliest date of an incumbent is 1181. It was a Rectory in the gift of the Prebendary of St. Pancras and formed part of the manor of that prebendary. It was appropriated in 1445 to the minor canons of St. Paul's, and so continued until the church was annexed to St. Mary Magdalene, Old Fish Street, in 1666." [Sir Walter Besant. The Survey of London (1903) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
