St Mary Bothaw

"ST. MARY BOTHAW, the church of, stood formerly on the east side of Turnwheel-lane, Cannon-street, and took its addition, according to a surmise of Stowe, from its vicinity to a boat-haw, or boat-builder's yard, in its neighbourhood. This church, which was one of the thirteen peculiars within the city, belonging to the Archbishop of Canterbury, having suffered greatly by the fire of London, was not rebuilt, but the parish was united by act of parliament to that of St. Swithin." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]

This parish - no. 65 in the above map - is located in Walbrook Ward.
The church was destroyed in 1666 and not rebuilt.
The parish was later united with St Swithin London Stone 1670, St Stephen Walbrook 1954.
