Parish History[edit | edit source]
St Mildred Poultry with St Mary Colechurch, the church of... 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 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 Mercer's 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.
