Parish History

'All Hallows, the Great, the church of, is situated at the northeast corner of All Hallows Lane, on the south side Upper Thames Street, near you office at the lower end of Bush Lane, Cannon Street. It derives its name from its dedication to all Saints or Hallows, and it's epithets, to distinguish it from an adjoining church of the same name, which was called in The Less. It is also in ancient books called the more, or the greater, and it, ad Faenum, in the ropery, from its vicinity to some rope walks. His church was founded by the ancestors of the Despencer Family, from whom it passed to the crown, until in 1546 Henry VIII gave it to Thomas, Archbishop of Canterbury, in whose successors it has remained... it is rectory, and one of the 13 peculiars in London, the parish of All Hollows the Less, originally called All Hallows, super cellarium, from being built arched vaults or cellars, was united to All Hallows the Great, and the present church, built from the designs of Sir Christopher Wren, erected for the use of both parishes. The interior of his church is at the Tuscan order, is 87 feet long, 60 feet broad and 33 feet high, built of brick and stone in a strong and solid manner. The tower is plain, square, and divided into five stories, and having neither spire turret or pinnacles, has the appearance of being unfinished... Among the funeral monuments that were in the ancient Church Of All Hallows the Great, and that were destroyed by the great fire [1666], was one of too interesting a nature to be omitted... [I]t was one erected, probably by the parish, to the memory of our illustrious... Queen Elizabeth, to whom may very properly be applied to epitaph of the Empress Maria Teresa of Austria.'[17]

After the Great Fire of London (1666), All Hallows the Great Parish united with All Hallows the Less Parish.[18]

All Hallows the Less Parish was also known as All Hallows upon the Cellar.
