On its rebuilding after the great fire the parish of Trinity the Less was united to it by act of Parliament [see Trinity the Less] and the patronage of the latter being in the Dean and chapter of Canterbury, they present to the United directory alternately.  It is in the city, diocese and archdeaconry of London, and in the above named patronage."[1]
