Parish History

"St Michael Queenhithe with Holy Trinity the Less, the church of, named from its saint and situation, stands on the north side of opportunities street, opposite Queenhithe; which was formerly called Cornhithe, as all the corn brought from the western parts of the country was landed here.  The earliest mention of this church was under the name of St. Michael de Corn hill in 1181, and we find that in 1404, [it was] left [as] part of [an] estate to found [a] charity within its walls.  The ancient Church having been destroyed by the fire of London, the present structure was erected instead by Sir Christopher Wren in 1677.  The advowson of this church has been... in the Dean and chapter of St. Paul's. 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]

Trinity the Less, the church of, was situated before the fire of London, at the northeast corner of Little Trinity Lane, where a German Chapel now stands. It received the epithet "the Less" to distinguish it from the Trinity priory at Aldgate; but having been destroyed by the fire of 1666, the parish was united to that of St Michael Queenhithe, and the church was not rebuilt.[2]

These parishes were part of Queenhithe Ward. Holy Trinity the Less Parish was also part of Vintry Ward.
