St Michael Queenhithe

"ST. MICHAEL, Queenhithe, the church of, named from its saint and situation, stands on the north side of Upper Thames-street, opposite Queenhithe; which was formerly called Corn-hithe, as all the corn brought from the western parts of the county was landed here. The earliest mention of this church was under the name of St. Michael de Cornhithe in 1181. . . The ancient church having been destroyed by the fire of London, the present structure was erected in its stead, by Sir Christopher Wren in 1677. It consists of a well proportioned body, lighted by two series of windows; the tower is plain, with a well proportioned spire, terminated by a ship by way of a vane, 135 feet from the ground. On its rebuilding after the great fire the parish of Trinity the Less was united to it by act of parliament. . . The present rector is the Rev T. L. Strong, who was instituted by the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's in 1822." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
