Parish History[edit | edit source]

"Holy Trinity in the Minories, the church of, is situated in the Little Minories [The Minories Street] It stands on part of the ancient convent of the nuns of St Clare, called the Minoresses, that was founded in 1239, by Edmund Earl of Lancaster, brother of Edward I. This being suppressed, in 1539, a number of houses were erected on its site, and a small church was built for the inhabitants, and dedicated to the Holy trinity, whence it derived its name, and its addition from its situation. This church was rebuilt in a plain substantial manner, in 1706, and is the family burial place of the Legges, Earls of Dartmouth, to one of whose ancestors, a house called the king's, was granted by Charles II.

"The curate of this, for it is neither a rectory nor vicarage, holds the living [ministry] by an instrument of donation under the great seal of England. It is in the city [of London], diocese and archdeaconry of London..."
