Add unique information about the censuses. Add links to online census records, and/or link to the Family History Library film/fiche numbers.

Civil Registration

Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these records. There are several Internet sites with name lists or indexes. A popular site is FreeBMD.

Probate records

Records of wills, administrations, inventories, indexes, etc. were filed by the court with jurisdiction over this parish.

Before 1858, St Faith fell under the jurisdiction of the Court of the Peculiar of the Dean and Chapter of St Paul's Cathedral. St Augustine fell under the jurisdiction of the Court of the Archdeaconry of London. In practice, many St Augustine residents left their wills in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury from the 1700s through 1858.[14] From 1858 to the present, refer to the Principal Probate Registry.

Go to London Probate Records to find the names of the courts having secondary jurisdiction. Scroll down in the article to the section Court Jurisdictions by Parish.

Cemetery

Transcripts of early St Augustine with St Faith tombs found in the interior of the churches were published in Catalogue of the most Memorable Persons who had visible Tombs, plated Gravestones ... in the City of London (through) A.D. 1700, which is available online.[15]

Records of the Poor

Contributor: Add information about the pertinent poor law unions in the area.

Parish History

St Faith church site
"St Augustine with St Faith, Old Change.  This church is situated behind number 35, St. Paul's churchyard, and at the corner of Watling Street, in the ward of Farringdon Within. It is dedicated to St. August and or Austin the monk, the English apostle.  The old church having suffered by the fire of London, was rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren, in 1683.  The interior is of the Ionic order, 51 feet long, 45 broad and 30 hi.  Owing to the smallness of the parishes, that of St. Faith's is united to it, and they are a rectory, the advowson of which is in the dean in Chapter St. Paul's, in whose patronage it appears always to have been, for it is mentioned in their books as early as the year in 1181..."[16]


St Augustine Parish was part of Bread Street Ward. Only the church tower survives for St Augustine's today.[17] Also known as St Austin Parish, as well as St Augustine Watling Street Parish.

St Faith Parish is also known as St Faith under St Pauls. The parish church has been demolished.
