(St.) Benet Fink
- On the south side of Threadneedle Street in Broad Street Ward (Elmes, 1831).Earliest mention found in records : St. Benet Finck, 1216 (Cott. MS. Faust. B. 11). Parish of "St. Benedict Fink" by Cornhill, 36 H. III. (Anc. Deeds, A. 1922).Stow says it was new built by Robert Finke the Elder (who lived in Finch Lane), and named after him (S. 184). From the Cott. MS. Faustina, B. II. fol. 8o, it appears that Rosamund Finke gave her stone house in parish of St. Benet Finck to Clerkenwell Priory, and that Priory regranted it to Robert, son of Robert Finke.The house of Alwini Fink was in the parish in 1285 (MSS. D. and C. St. Paul Lib. L. 93).The church is called "S. Bndci Wink" in this MS. "S. Benedict Fyngh, 1311 (Ct. H.W. I. 223).Repaired 1633. Burnt in the Great Fire and rebuilt by Wren 1679. Taken down 1842-4 for the New Royal Exchange, and the parish united to St. Peter le Poor, and the monuments removed to that church.A Rectory. Patrons : John de Nevyle, 10 Ed. I. (Ch. I. p.m.).Newcourt says this family probably gave the advowson to the Hospital of St. Anthony. At any rate it was appropriated to the Hospital by the Bishop of London 1440 (Rep. I. 299).In 1474 it was given by Ed. IV. to the Collegiate Church of St. George's Windsor, in whose hands it has since remained (ib.).See St. Benedict Cornhill.
