   It is said to have been attached to St. Martin's le Grand in the 11th century, and was perhaps included in William's charter to that foundation (N. and Q. 7th S. x. 174-5).

   Burnt 1548, and newly repaired (ib.). Again repaired and beautified 1624. Steeple repaired 1629-30, and a new turret made (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 101). Burnt in the Fire and rebuilt of rubbed brick (ib. 121), the parish of St. John Zachary being united to it.
   Patrons : Dean of St. Martin's le Grand (Arnold's Chronicle, 247). Afterwards, the Abbot and Convent of Westminster (Newcourt, I. 278).
   Dedication to the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
