   In 1448 a grant of land was made for enlarging the church of St. Botolph without Aldrichgate, 27 H. VI. 1448 (Cal. L. Bk. K. p. 325).
   Three fraternities in the Church, Holy Trinity, St. Katherine, and SS. Fabian and Sebastian (Staples, 17).
   Church repaired 1627. Steeple decayed, pulled down and rebuilt (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 113).

   St. Botoph was a hermit-abbot of the 7th century, and founded a monastery at Ikanho, a little village in Suffolk. But beyond this, little is known of his life and work. It is interesting to note that of the four churches dedicated to him in London, three stand near to the sites of three of the principal gates of the City on the high roads leading north and east out of the City.
