(St.) Botolph Aldersgate
   On the west side of Aldersgate Street, at the south-east corner of Little Britain, in Aldersgate Ward Without (P.O. Directory).
   Earliest mention found in records : "St. Botulph without Aldredesgate," 43 H. III. (Anc. Deeds, A. 1493).
   Other form : "Sancti Botulphi de Aldresgate," 31 Ed. I. (Lib. Cust. I. 228).
   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).
   Rebuilt 1754-7, repaired 1833 and 1851.
   A Vicarage. Patrons : Dean of St Martin's le Grand, 30 Ed. I., later the Dean and Chapter of Westminster.
   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.
