(St.) Andrew
   In Edgar's Charter to Westminster dated 951, setting out the boundaries, occurs the following description : " to thaere ealde stoccene sce Andreas cyricean " on the " wide herestraet " (Kemble, Birch).
   It seems probable that the church referred to as forming part of the eastern boundary, is St. Andrew Holborn, though possibly on a different site. The words of the charter imply that there was another and newer stone church of St. Andrew existing at the time, or it may be so described merely to distinguish it from the other churches of the same dedication in the City.
