Parish History

All Hallows Staining Tower
'All Hallows Staining, church is situated near the eastern extremity of Langbourn Ward, on the west side, and near to the north end of Mark Lane, within four houses all of Fenchurch Street. It is believed to be a Saxon origin from its cognomen Stane, corruptly Staining, the Saxon word for stone, probably to distinguish it from some other that was of wood. It is mentioned as early as 1329, when Edward Camel was it's incumbent. He was actually a rectory under the patronage all of the De Walthams, until 1365, when Simon, Bishop of London, presented it to the abbot and the convent of DeGrace, near the Tower. As the Reformation devolved to the crown and was afterwards sold by James the First to George Bingley and others soccage. It came afterwards into the possession all Lady Slaney, who bequeathed it to the Grocers Company...'[1]


In 1870, All Hallows Staining Parish Church was demolished and the parish united with St. Olave Hart Street.[2] Only the tower stands today.
