Administrative/Biographical history:

The research was used for Bradford's article "St Sepulchre Holborn: Fresh facts from wills", in Transactions of the London and Middlesex Archaeological Society, New Series, Vol.VIII, 1940, pp.169-94. Charles Angell Bradford was a historian with several published titles including Heart Burial (1930); Blanche Parry: Queen Elizabeth's Gentlewoman (1935); Helena, Marchioness of Northampton (1936); Hugh Morgan: Queen Elizabeth's Apothecary (1939); and several contributions to journals, particuarly on the history of Saint Sepulchre, Holborn.

The church of Saint Sepulchre, Holborn Viaduct, was first mentioned in 1137. It was damaged in the Great Fire of 1666 and was rebuilt in 1670-71. However the tower and outer wall survived and date from around 1450. The church is now the National Musicians' Church. The church is also known as Saint Sepulchre without Newgate as it stood just outside the Newgate walls. The parish was partly within the City of London and partly within the former county of Middlesex.
