Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The first mention of the church of All Hallows, Bread Street, dates to 1221. John Milton was christened there in 1608. The building was repaired in 1625 only to be destroyed during the Great Fire of 1666. It was rebuilt by Wren in 1677-1684. The parish of All Hallows, Bread Street, was united to the parish of Saint John the Evangelist, Friday Street, in 1670. The united parishes of Saint John and All Hallows were joined with the united parishes of Saint Mary, Saint Pancras and All Hallows, Honey Lane, in 1876. In 1876 the site was sold and the proceeds went towards the construction of All Hallows in Poplar. Most of the fittings were transferred to the Poplar church.
