St. Martin Orgar

The church of St. Martin Orgar, named for Dean Orgar who gave the church to the canons, has been wrongly located by the maker of the Agas map. The church is drawn in Bridge Ward Within, south of Crooked Lane and west of New Fish Street on St. Michael’s Lane. However, the church was actually located one block northwest in Candlewick Street Ward, on the east side of St. Martin’s Lane just south of Candlewick Street. Early names for the church were variants on St. Martin’s Candlewickstreet. The church is correctly located on Vertue’s map (British Library Online Gallery) and on Cole’s engraving of Langbourne and Candlewick Wards (British Library Online Gallery). (See Harben; BHO.)
This error is one of two such mistakes on the Agas map. The maker also mislocated the church of St. Pancras, Soper Lane.
