Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Mary's originated in a chapel built in 1311 because the residents of Stratford Bow were having difficulty reaching the parish church of Saint Dunstan's, Stepney (P93/DUN), due to poor roads. The chapel was expanded in 1490. At this date the church was part of Stepney parish but was formally separated in 1719. The church was damaged during the Second World War and later restored. The church is also known as Bow Church but should not be confused with Saint Mary-le-Bow, Cheapside (P69/MRY7).
