Saint Paul's was constructed as a chapel of ease to the church of Saint Dunstan (P93/DUN). It was built on land leased from the Dean of Saint Paul's Cathedral which influenced the dedication to Saint Paul. It became a parish in 1669. The present building was constructed in 1817-1820. More than 75 sea captains' wives lie buried in the churchyard and over 175 sea captains were married in the church in the period 1730-1790.
