Parish History

"All Hallows, London Wall, the church of, stands a little westward of Broad Street in London wall, whence it derives its name. It is a rectory, in the patronage of which was anciently in the prior and convent of the Holy Trinity, near Aldgate, who in 1335 presented it Thomas Richer De Sanston. At the dissolution of religious houses in the reign of Henry VIII, this church, with the priory to which it belonged, was surrendered to the crown, in whose gift the advowson still remains. It escaped the fire in 1666, but became latterly so ruinous that in 1765 the parishioners obtained an act of Parliament to pull it down and rebuild it; which they did... It is a plain substantial church, of brick and stone, with a well proportioned stone tower and cupola."[1]

In 1589, All Hallows London Wall belonged to Aldgate Ward and/or Broad Street Ward.[2] The parish name was also spelled "Allhallows" London Wall. The modern name of this parish is All Hallows on the Wall.
