A former church in the City of London.
The Mortality Bill for the year 1665, published by the "Parish Clerk’s Company", shows 97 parishes within the City of London. [ "The ancient office of Parish Clerk and the Parish Clerks Company of London" Clark, O :London, Journal of the Ecclesiastical Law Society Vol 8, January 2006 ISSN: 0956-618X ] By September 6th the city lay in ruins, 86 churches having been destroyed. [ The "Churches of the City of London" Reynolds,H: London, Bodley Head, 1922] In 1670 a Rebuilding Act was passed and a committee set up under the stewardship of Sir Christopher Wren to decide which would be rebuilt. [ "Wren" Whinney,M London Thames & Hudson, 1971 ISBN 0500201129] Fifty-one were chosen, but St Martin Vintry on the junction of Queen Street and Upper Thames Street just north of Southwark Bridge [“Notes on Old City Churches: their organs, organists and musical associations” Pearce,C.W.: London, Winthrop Rogers Ltd, 1909] in Vintry Ward was one of the unlucky minority never to be rebuilt. [ "The City of London Churches" Betjeman, J. Andover, Pitkin, 1967 (rpnt 1992) ISBN 0853725659 ] Its dedication derives from its patronage by the surrounding Vintners ["A Dictionary of London" Harben,H: London, Herbert Jenkins, 1918] . Rebuilt in 1299 [”Vanished Churches of the City of London” Huelin,G London Guildhall Library Publishing 1996 ISBN 0900422424] , following the fire it was united to St Michael Paternoster Royal and partial records still survive at IGI. [ [ Genealogical Web-Site] ] .
