St Katherine Cree-Church

"ST. CATHERINE, or KATHERINE CREE, the church of, is situated at the south-east angle of Cree church-lane, in Leadenhall-street. [It is] distinguished from other churches of the same name by the addition of Cree, the ancient English method of spelling Christ, as pronounced by the French, having been built on the site of a dissolved priory, whose church was called that of our Saviour Christ. . . The present structure was erected in 1630, it is built of stone in a mixed and impure style. The length of the body is ninety feet, the breadth fifty-one, and the height thirty-seven. Maitland . . . says that the church is a curacy, and that the parishioners have the privilege of electing their own minister, who must be licensed by the Bishop of London. But the Clerical Guide, which must be of authority, says that it is a vicarage, and still in the gift of the Master and Fellows of Magdalene College, Cambridge, who instituted the Rev. George Hodson in 1814." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
