There are frequent references to "Fancherche" and the parish of Fancherche or Fencherche in the early records, in descriptions of property, etc.
   The name is given : "Fenchirche," c. 1170 (Anc. Deeds, A. 2184). "Fancherche" 1276 (Ct. H.W. I. 27). Messuage, etc., in Belieters lane and highway leading "versus Fancherche "ad portam" called Alegate, 12 Ed. II. (Anc. Deeds, A. 1993). Near "Fancherche" in ward of Langebourne, 15 Ed. III. 1341 (Cal. L. Bk. F. p. 256). Church called "Fanchurche," 23 Ed. III. 1349 (Cal. P.R. Ed. III. 1348-50, p. 266). "Vanchirche," 1376 (Ct. H.W. II. 191).
   There seems little doubt that the church so designated was St. Gabriel Fenchurch, which was also dedicated to St. Mary and All Saints (q.v.).
   The derivation of the name is treated of under Fenchurch Street (q.v.).
