All Hallows (London Wall)

All Hallows, London Wall is a church built east of Bishopsgate, near or on the City Wall. The church is visible on the Agas map northwest of Broad Street and up against the south side of the City Wall. The label All Haloues in y Wall is west of the church. In his description of Broad Street Ward, Stow notes only the location of the church and the three distinguished people interred therein by 1601.
There has been a church on the site since the twelfth century. The church was expanded in 1528–1529 and repaired in 1613 and 1627. The medieval church escaped the Great Fire of London in 1666 and was finally pulled down and rebuilt in 1765. During this last building phase, part of a bastion of the old London Wall was incorporated into the church itself as a circular vestry (Harben). This church still stands in the same location today.
All Hallows, London Wall has had many variant names. Some of the more common ones are All Hallows at the Wall, All Hallows by the Wall, All Hallows near London Wall, All Hallows under the Wall, and All Hallows at Wall (Harben). Whatever the variant, the church’s location has been included as part of its name since the thirteenth century.
