Parish History

"St Edmund the King with St Nicholas Acons, the church of, is situated on the north side of Lombard Street, between George Yard and Birchin Lane/ This church derives its names from being dedicated to St Edmund, King of the East Angles, who was murdered by the Danes in 870. The original church supposed to have been built in the Saxon heptarchy, and the late church was destroyed in the great fire of 1666. The present church was built by Sir Christopher Wren, and finished in 1690. It differes from most churches of that period, as it stands north and south, and the atltar is at the north end. Its lenth is 69 feet, its breadth 39 feet, and its height 32 feet. At the south end is a square tower, with a well-proportioned spire, and a dial projecting into the street. This church is a rectory in the patronage of the King and the Archbishop of Canterbury alternately. The parish is united to that of St nicholas Acons, the church of which, before the fire of London, stood on the west side of St Nicholas, and was a rectory in the gift of the Archbishop of Canterbury; and hence the alternate patronage. These united parishes are in the ward of Langbourn, in the archdeaconry of London..."[1]

St. Nicholas Acons Parish Church was united with St. Edmund the King and Martyr in 1670 to create the parish of St. Edmund the King and Martyr with St. Nicholas Acons. In 1937 a further unification united All Hallows Lombard Street, St. Benet Gracechurch, St. Leonard Eastcheap and St. Dionis Backchurch to them. Generally the united parish was known as St. Edmund the King and Martyr.

St Edmund the King belonged to Langbourn Ward. The parish was also known as St Edmund the King and Martyr Lombard Street.
