Holy Trinity Priory

roseAgas Map
Holy Trinity Priory, located west of Aldgate and north of Leadenhall Street, was an Augustinian Priory. Stow notes that Queen Matilda established the Priory in 1108 in the parishes of Saint Marie Magdalen, S. Michael, S. Katherine, and the blessed Trinitie, which now was made but one Parish of the holy Trinitie (Stow). Before Matilda united these parishes under the name Holy Trinity Priory, they were collectively known as the Holy Cross or Holy Roode parish (Stow; Harben). When the Priory was surrendered to King Henry VIII in July 1531, it had become a very fayre and large church, rich in lands and ornaments, and [sur]passed all the Priories in the citie of London (Stow).
The Priory of the Holy Trinity, also known as Christ Church, can be found on the Agas map east of Aldgate and near the city wall. The priory complex is identified by the label Crychur.
