(St.) Gregory by St. Paul's
   At the south-west end of St. Paul's, adjoining the Lowlardes Tower (S. 372, and Strype). In Castle Baynard Ward. The parish extended into Farringdon Ward Within.
   First mention: "Aeclesia beati gregorii pape XVIII...Ecclesia memorati gregorii infra atrium apostoli pauli." In "Miraculi Beati Edmundi Regis," by Hermannus, Archdeacon, c. 1070 (Cott. MS. Tit. B. II. 1).
   The MS. contains an account of the translation of the body of St. Edmund and of the miracles wrought by it when it was brought into London, into the church of St. Gregory.
   Other forms : "St. Gregory," 51 H. III. (L. and M. Ft. of Fines, I. 44). "St. Gregorii juxta Sanctum Paulum," 31 Ed. I. (Lib. Cust. I. 229). "St. Gregory in St. Paul's Churchyard," 1347 (Cal. Close R. Ed. III. 1346-9, p. 296). "St. Gregory near St. Paul's," 1391-2 (Cal. L. Bk. H. p. 375). "St. Gregory by Poulescheyne," 10 H. VI. (Cal. P.R. 1429-36, p. 216).

   Partly pulled down 1641, to the disgust of the parishioners, on the advice of Inigo Jones for the rebuilding of St. Paul's (H. MSS. Com. MSS. H. of Lords, 4th Rep. 89).
   Burnt in the Fire and not rebuilt, the parish united to St. Mary Magdalen, Old Fish Street (ib. 230).
   A Rectory. Patrons : Canons of St. Paul's.
   The dedication is to St. Gregory the Great, to whom the English Church owes an eternal debt of gratitude for the mission of St. Augustine which he sent to this country during his papacy.
