St Augustine Papey was a church on the south side of the city wall and opposite the north end of St. Mary Axe Street. The church dated from the twelfth century and in 1442 a fraternity of brothers was installed (Harben). The church and brotherhood were suppressed during the Reformation and Stow tells us the church was pulled down and houses built on the site (Stow).
Stow calls the church a proper [i.e. appropriate or suitable for the task] house (Stow). Stow is, however, mistaken about the origin of the church’s name. He states it was named after the fraternity of poor brothers, or Papey. But the church was known as Sci augustini pappey in 1244, two hundred years before the fraternity’s installation (Harben). Modern scholars have suggested that Papey would have been a reference to San Pietro in Pavia (Papia), where the relics of St. Augustine were kept (Harben).
St. Augustine Papey is featured on the Agas map and bears the label Papye. The church and its lands are clearly visible.
