St John the Evangelist

"ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST, Watling-street, the church of, stood at the corner of Friday-street and Watling-street; but being consumed by the fire of London, and not rebuilt, it was united by act of Parliament to the parish of Allhallows, Bread-street." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]

This parish - no. 38 in the above map - is located in Bread Street Ward.
The church was destroyed in 1666 and not rebuilt.
