St Mary Aldermanbury

"ST. MARY, Aldermanbury, the church of, is situated on the west side of the street so called, between Love-lane and Addle-street, Wood-street, Cheapside. It derives its name from its dedication to the Virgin Mary, and its addition from its situation. This church is of very ancient date, as appears from a sepulchral inscription, recorded to have been in the old church, bearing the date of 1116. The patronage was formerly in the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's. . . After the dissolution of the religious houses, the patronage was granted to the parishioners, who have ever since enjoyed the right of presentation. It is a curacy, in the city, diocese and archdeaconry of London, and in the patronage of the parishioners. The present incumbent is the Rev. James T. Salisbury, who was instituted in 1828." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
