"The PARISH of St. Nicholas OLAVE. On the West Side whereof was the Parish Church of St. Nicholas Olave, a convenient Church. This Church was repaired and beautified in the Year of Our Lord God 1623. The Cost of it 24 l. Since that in the Year 1628, the South Isle, that was like a Cottage before, only tiled, was ceiled, and that decently and gracefully finished. Which, with some Cost bestowed on the Steeple, did arise to the Sum of 22 l. This Church, demolished by the great Fire, remains unbuilt, and the Parish united to St. Nicholas Cole-abbey. [John Stow, John Mottley. A survey of the cities of London and Westminster . . . (1733-35) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
