Parish History

"St Mildred Bread Street with St Margaret Moses, the church of, stands on the east side of Bread Street and is so called from its situation from being dedicated to Mildred, a saint, daughter of Merwaldus, and to Penda, King of Mercians, who consecrated abbess of a monastery in the Isle of Thanet... It is a rectory, founded and built by Lord Trenchant, of St Alban's, about the year 1300, and enlarged in 1428,... [with a] vestry room, and church yard, to the parishioners, and a parsonage house to the rector. The old church was burned down in 1666, and rebuilt in 1683, by Sir Christopher Wren. The advowson of this church was anciently in the Prior and Canons of St Mary Overy, but it afterwards came into the family of Sir Nicholas Crispe and is now in private hands. After the fire of London, the parish of St Margaret  Moses (see that church), was united to it by act of parliament; which church, after many changes from 1105,...till the suppression of that convent, by Edward III, as an  alien Priory, fell to the crown, in whose patronage it has continued to this day.

"These united parishes are a rectory, in the city, diocese and archdeaconry of London..."[1]

St Mildred Bread Street and St Margaret Moses parishes were part of Bread Street Ward.
