(St.) Anne Blackfriars
   On the east side of Church Entry, north of Glasshouse Yard in Farringdon Ward Within (O. and M. 1677).
   First mention: " Parish of St. Anne within the site of the Friars Preachers," 36 H. VIII. 1544 (L. and P. H. VIII. XIX. (2), p.192).
   This was the parish church for the inhabitants of the precinct of the Blackfriars, as distinct from the conventual church set apart for the use of the Friars only, and the Prior maintained at his own cost a curate to serve the parishioners there.
   The site was appropriated by Sir Thos. Cawarden as part of the priory precincts given to him, but in the reign of Queen Mary he had to find a place of worship for the parishioners within the precincts, and this parish church Stow says was rebuilt and enlarged, 1597.
   The church and churchyard were purchased by the inhabitants of the precinct, 1607. The church was again enlarged, 1613. Burnt down in the Fire 1666 and not rebuilt, the parish being united to St. Andrew Wardrobe (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 180, 194).
