St. Anthony’s Hospital

St. Anthony’s Hospital was associated with the Parish of St. Benet (Fink) and was on the opposite side of Threadneedle Street from the church of the parish, St. Benet Fink. According to Stow, Henry III granted the construction of a synagogue in this space. The building was constructed for that purpose in 1231, but, as Stow writes, the christians obtayned of the king that it should be dedicated to our blessed Lady, and since an Hospital being there builded, was called S. Anthonies in London (Stow 1598, sig. K8v). The hospital consisted of a church, almshouse, and school. It was dissolved in the thirty-seventh year of Henry VIII’s reign, with the almshouses converted to rental houses and the church converted to a church for French protestants (Stow 1598, sig. L1r, Carlin and Belcher 85). The building was destroyed in the Great Fire, then rebuilt, and finally demolished in 1840 (Carlin and Belcher 85).
