Administrative/Biographical history:

Holy Trinity Minories was situated in Haydon Square. The church originated as the chapel of a convent of the Order of Saint Clare, which was closed during the Dissolution in 1539. The convent chapel was given to the parish and given the name Saint Trinities. In 1893 the parish was merged with Saint Botolph Aldgate (P69/BOT2). The church building was used as a parish room until it was destroyed during the Second World War.
