St Margaret New Fish-street

The church of St. Margaret, New Fish Street, was not rebuilt after the Great Fire, and as it stood close to the spot where the conflagration commenced, its site was utilized for the erection of the Monument by which that momentous event was commemorated. The rectory of St. Margaret was united with that of St. Magnus. The former had been, before the dissolution of monasteries, in the gift of the abbot and convent of Westminster, and the patron age of the latter had been alternately exercised by the abbot and convent of Westminster and the abbot and convent of Bermondsey. Both advowsons were amongst those given by Queen Mary to the see of London. . . John Alcock held the living of St. Margaret, New Fish Street, from 1461 to 1471, resigning it on his elevation to the see of Rochester. [A.E. Daniell. London City Churches (1896) - transcribed by Brian Randell]

This parish - no. 95 in the above map - is located in Bridge and Bridge Without Ward.
The church was destroyed in 1666 and not rebuilt.
The parish was later united with St Magnus the Martyr 1670.
