(St.) Anne at the Tourhill

   " Anne on the Towr Hill and Abbey of Whit Monkys " (Arnold's Chronicle, p. 247 and p. 75).
   " Seynt Anne Abbey within Portsokyn Warde, of White Munkys," 1516 (Fabyan's Chronicle, p. 297).
   These entries would seem to refer to the Cistercian Abbey of St. Mary Graces by the Tower of London, which was the only Cistercian Abbey in the City, and it appears from Cal. Papal Letters, quoted in Victoria Co. Hist. London, p. 462, that the Abbey Church was dedicated to St. Anne.
