St Martin Pomroy

"S\t. MARTIN POMARY, the church of, was formerly situated in Ironmonger-lane, Cheapside, and is supposed, by Stowe, to have received its addition from Pomary, an apple garden, but I am more indined to think from the family of the Pomeroys who might have had some connection with its patronage. The ancient church having been destroyed by the fire of London, the parish was united to that of St. Olive Jewry, by act of parliament." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]

This parish - no. 25 in the above map - is located in Cheap Ward.
The church was destroyed in 1666 and not rebuilt.
The parish was later united with St Olave Jewry 1670, St Margaret Lothbury 1886.
