T N a work like the present only a few words of explanation are
■*• necessary. After consulting some well-knowD authorities we
decided to eliminate from the volume a large quantity of matter
connected with the history and antiquities of the united parishes. We
were borne out in this decision by the fact that a large percentage of
those who manifested a practical interest in the work were more
anxious to obtain copies of the Registers than the accompanying
history.

We think it sufficient to print verbatim the Account of the two
parishes given in " Newcourt's Repertorium, ' to which we have added
notes, some of which have been most kindly supplied by friends.

As the Church of St. Mary Woolnoth has been entirely rebuilt
and St. Mary Woolchurch Haw has been destroyed, it does not
seem advisable to enlarge on the style or appearance of the old
Churches. Care has however been taken to give such entries from
the Churchwardens' accounts, &c, as show that they were handsome
and large edifices. These Accounts are so voluminous that great
difficulty has been experienced in making a selection at once interest-
ing and concise. Special attention has been paid to the earlier
portions, as there the Archaeologist will find most to interest him.
while the student of history will note how the stirring events of
the time affected the parochial life of the citizens.

The Inventory of Church Goods which strikes us as particularly
full has been given in extenso.

It will be seen that the Registers of both parishes were tran-
scribed in 1599 —

' I 59*> Item paid for fair writing into the Parchment booke all the
Christenings weddings and burials from anno 1538 until
this year 1599 [Woolnoth Ch. Ace] iij'/r."



PREFACE.

The Title page of the Woolchurch Register (p. 297) shows that'
in the same year a transcript was made from an older volume which
commenced in 1558. The Woolchurch volume was disused after the
Great Fire except for a few occasional entries.

This wholesale transcribing of the earlier portions of both
Registers led to clerical errors, the scribe apparently being puzzled
as to some of the names. On careful consideration we have thought
it best to give a simple transcript without venturing to suggest correct
readings, except that in the index some of the more manifest errors
have been noted — a very careful revisal convinces us that the printer
has done his work with great exactness. At page 43 however the
date 1639 should have been inserted between Feb. 24 and April 8.

The plan wisely adopted by our best transcribers has been
followed, and though every entry and every name have been carefully
copied, superfluous matter has been omitted ; had this not been
done the already bulky volume would have grown to an unwieldly
size without any commensurate advantage. Many minute details are
given in the original as to the exact position of graves which were
doubtless intended to guide future sextons. Notices of Burials in
the Chancel have been copied as they shew that the deceased held
a superior social position. Also a few notices of burials in " the
new Churchyard " or " Bethlehem " showing that the parishioners
occasionally made use of the Cemetery which was provided by
Lord Mayor Sir Thomas Rowe in 1568, by enclosing part of the
site of the Priory of St. Mary of Bethlehem close to Bishopsgate
Street. This burying place was called "The new Churchyard near
Bethlehem."

Some events connected with the Royal Family will be found
recorded.

It is singular that no notice of the great plague of 1665
appears in the Woolnoth books. In the Woolchurch volume " pi."
has been written in blacker ink.

The Woolnoth Registers possess a feature which is almost
entirely absent from those of Woolchurch, Trades and designations

PREFACE.

are very fully entered, and we may be allowed to say a few words on
this subject. Very many "Strangers"* lived in the parish. The
Genealogist will recognise many of the names given below and in
the Index. There are some words which ask for an explanation
such as "Weynerth Stranger" (p. 199), and "Zelzere Stranger"
(p. 190). Seme of the Trades mentioned in the Register and
Church Accounts also require explanation such as " Pasteler,"
" Gongfarmer," " Poyntagger." A " Vergenal maker " named Cramor
is found in the 16th century, and an early instance of a double
Christian name (foreign however 1 ) at page 14. " The Writer of
the Court letter " (p. 1 and elsewhere) was the designation of a
Scrivener prior to the grant of the Royal Charter in 16 16. John
Fearne (Farnese ?) a " stranger," was a " Mylliner," while the son of
an Italian Duke (p. 194) was laid to rest with this brief record of his
rank. The term " Chrisom " is explained in a document (Sta. Pa.
Dom. 1636), "It was an ancient custom at Basingstoke that women
coming to be churched brought with them a piece of linen cloth
which was called a Chrisom which was offered and given to the
Vicar, but if any child died before the mother's churching it was
buried in the same Chrisom." We give but a few instances of rare
words and would refer the reader to the general index where we
have endeavoured to collect all words of real interest.

Any value which this volume may be found to possess is largely

due to the assistance which has been most kindly rendered by many

* The meaning of the term "stranger" is explained by the following
extract—" I thought that a forrener and a straunger had been all one . . . Than
remaine there none other forreners and straungers to be looked upon, but Dutch-
men, Danes, Italians and frenchmenne." (Bales '•Declaration," 1554, fo. 35).

PREFACE.

friends, and our thanks are specially due first to the Worshipful
Company of Goldsmiths who, owing to their long and close intimacy
with the parish and with which they have been honourably connected
for centuries, have handsomely and generously subscribed towards
the cost of this work ; also to the Rev. E. Hoskins, Rector of
St. Mary Magdelene and St. Gregory by St. Paul ; J. Jackson
Howard, Esq., LL.D. ; W. H. Overall, Esq. ; Walford D.
Selbv, Esq., Record Office ; J. Sharpe, Esq., LL.D., Guildhall ;
J Chaloner Smith, Esq., Somerset House; H. D. Phillips, Esq.,
and Messrs. Noble and Essex. We owe much to the taste and
care shown by Messrs. Bowles & Sons, our printers. We feel sure
that Mr. J. Bowles has taken special interest in these records as he
is Churchwarden of St. Mary Woolchurch. The volume has been
printed in the parish. Bearbinder Lane (now called George Street)
was the direct communication between the two Churches and a
relic of Old London is still to be met with in a cellar in this street.

As this volume has been the fruit of much labour we trust it
may be appreciated by those who are desirous of preserving the
annals of the past.

ST. MARY WOOLNOTH.



Account

of the PARISH of ST. MARY WOOLNOTH,

Extracted from Newcourt's Repertorium Ecclesiasticum Parochiale
Londinense from the Conquest to A.D. 1700. London, 1708.



[The notes in small numerals have been sup filed from Z'arlous sources. Ed.\



St. fHarg ^Hoolnotlj 1 ftectorg (page 461).

THIS Church, called S. Mary Woolnoth of the Nativity, Stow Surv - «3-
but the Reason thereof [Stow says) he hath not yet
learned, is situate on the South Side, and towards the West
end of Lombard Street, in Langbourne Ward. It is a
Rectory and subject to the Archdeacon.

This Church was new built about the year, 1438,
from the very foundation, as it seems ; for I find a Com-
misson dated March 24 that year granted by Robert Gilbert 85.
Gilbert, then Bishop of London to the Bishop of Enachdum,
in Ireland (a Bishoprick now united to some other in that
Kingdom) for the Consecration thereof. By which Com-
mission he impowered the said Bishop to Consecrate, not
only the Church, but also two Altars in it; one to the
Honour of the Blessed Virgin S. Mary and S. Anne, and
the other to S. John Baptist and S. John Evangelist. And
further to assign the Feast of Dedication of this Church to
be on Thursday next after the Feast of S. Anne the Mother
of the immaculate Virgin which is Thursday next after
July 26.

Sir Hugh Brice, Goldsmith, Mayor in the First of Stow ut su P ra >
Hen. VII., Keeper of the King's Exchange at London, and
one of the Governors of the King's Mint in the Tower of
London under William Lord Hastings in the 5 Edw. IV.
deceased built in this Church a Chapel called the Charnel
as also part of the Body of the Church and of the Steeple,
and gave money towards the finishing thereof besides the
House that he had prepared. He died in 1496 and was
buried in the Body of this Church.

Sir Simon Eyre a famous Merchant sometime an ibidem.
Upholster, then a Draper and Mayor of London in 1445,
the Founder of Leaden Hall and a Fair Chapel there, gave
the Cardinal's Halt Tavern in Lombard Street with a Tene-
ment annext on the East part of it, and a Mansion behind
the East Tenement together with an Alley from Lombard
Street to Cornhill with the appurtenances, all of which were

Geo. LusJun sometime Taylor to the Prince, built
the Chapel of S. George in this Church. 3 Here was a per-
Baudake8 S . pe tual Chantry founded for the souls of Gregory de
jRakesley and Amicia his Wife of which the Parishioners
were Patron ; which Gregory was the same who was Mayor
of London from the year 1275 to the year 1282 and dying
not long after was buried in the Grey Friars Church in
which Priory he built Dorters and Chambers and gave Bed
to them.

Baybr, 188. Another perpetual Chantry was founded here at the

Altar of the Blessed Virgin and S. Anne about the year
1400 for the souls of Tho. Noket, Gregory Norton and
their wives, and others their Relations of which the two
Prioress and Convent of S. Mary Clarkenwell were
Patrons. But these two Chantries it seems were afterwards
united by reason whereof the Rector, Churchwardens and
Chief of the Parishioners presented sometimes, and some-
time the said Prioress and Convent of S. Mary Clarkenwell
as appears by the London Registry^

The Advowson of this Church was all along in the gift
of the Prioress and Convent of St. Helen, London, till their
suppression in the reign of Hen. VIII. who soon after, viz.,

Stow Sur. 224 . i n 3I f his Reign granted it to Sir Martin Boivcs in whose
family the Right of Patronage hath continued ever since.
Which Sir Martin Bowes, Goldsmith and Mayor of London
anno 1545, died Aug. 4, 1566, and with Cecily, Darae^«;«
and Dame Elizabeth his wives was buried under a goodly
Marble close Tomb under the Communion Table here.

ibidem. There was a goodly Monument in the East end of the

Chancel of this Church erected by the Executors of Sir
Thomas Ramsey, Knight and Mayor of this City in 1577
in memory of the said Sir Thomas who died May 19, 1590,
and of his two virtuous Ladies Dame Alice and Dame
Mary, the latter of which was very remarkable for her
Charity to several places, especially to Christ's Hospital.

This Church was not wholly consumed in the late
dreadful Fire ; but the Steeple remained unburnt and part
of the Walls of the Church which is now rebuilt chiefly on
the old Walls except the xVorth side which fronts Lombard
Street and is wholly new, by the munificence (if I mistake
not) of the late Worthy and Generous (but unfortunate)
Sir Robert Finer, Knight and Baronet, deceased. 4 It is
a See burial of Joan Eyre. (Reg. p. 294.)
3 See burial of George Lovekin. (Reg-, p. 294.)

* This later Churoh falling greatly to decay, it was thought necessary to pull
down the whole ; in consequence of which, it was rebuilt of stone,
in the year 1719, in the manner in which it now appears. Lambert's

for that of St. Michael Queenhithe [ib] Neither is it likely that this took effect for on 22 of next
July the said de Legh obtains another License to exchange the said Ch. of Berkhamsted for that of
St. Edmund Lombard Street [Pat. 30, Ed. III., p. 2] and whether that was effectual I cannot
