"ST. MILDRED IN THE POULTRY, the church of, dedicated to the same saint, as the preceding, stands at the corner of St. Mildred's-court, on the north side of the Poultry, nearly opposite Walbrook. It is of ancient foundation, for John de Aswell was collated to it in 1325. The ancient church was burned down in 1666, and the present substantial edifice erected in its stead, by Sir Christopher Wren, in 1676, and the parish of St. Mary Cole, or Colechurch, was united to it by act of parliament. This church is in the patronage of the Mercers' Company, and that of St. Mildred, since the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII., to the crown. The united parishes are a rectory, in the city, diocese and archdeaconry of London, and in the before mentioned alternate patronage. The present rector is the Rev. Richard Crawley, Rector of Rotherfield, who was instituted by the Lord Chancellor in 1807." [James Elmes. A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
