St Nicholas Acons

"The Church of St. Nicholas Acons stood on the West Side of Nicholas-lane, near Lombard-street. It was a rectory subject to the Archdeacon of LONDON, saving only as to Wills and Administrations, which belonged to the Commissary. Sir John Bridges, Brug or Bruges, (for by all these Names he is written in Stow, Mayor of LONDON in 1520, repaired this Church, and embattled it, and was there buried. . . This Parish Church was repaired and beautified in 1615, at the cost of the Parishioners; but being burnt down by the dreadful Fire, was afterwards annex'd to that of St. Edmund Lombard-street, which is made the Parochial Church for the Inhabitants of both these Parishes, the profits thereof, in lieu of Tithes, are made of the yearly value of 180l. to the Incumbent. . . And the site of this Church remains now only as a Burying-place for the Inhabitants of this Parish." [John Stow. A survey of the cities of London and Westminster . . . (1733-35) - transcribed by Brian Randell]

This parish - no. 62 in the above map - is located in Langbourn Ward.
