Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

History of the united parishes of Saint Mary le Bow, Saint Pancras Soper Lane, All Hallows Honey Lane, Saint John the Evangelist Friday Street and All Hallows Bread Street:

Saint John the Evangelist, Friday Street, was originally dedicated to Saint Werburga, a Princess of Mercia and Abbess of Ely. The parish was the smallest in the City, less than an acre in size. By the middle of the 14th century the dedication was changed to Saint John the Evangelist.

The churches of All Hallows Honey Lane, Saint Pancras, Soper Lane, and Saint John the Evangelist, Friday Street, were destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. The parish of Saint Mary le Bow was united to the parishes of All Hallows Honey Lane and Saint Pancras Soper Lane in 1670. The parish of All Hallows Bread Street was united to the parish of St John the Evangelist in 1670.

The church of All Hallows Bread Street was demolished in 1876. 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. The church of St Mary remains a parish church.
