All Hallows Barking

The church of All Hallows Barking is in Tower Street Ward on the southeast corner of Seething Lane and on the north side of Tower Street. Stow describes it as a fayre parish Church (Stow 130).
There was initially a chapel built on the site by King Richard I. It was not until the reign of King Richard III that the chapel was replaced by a church and a college of priests installed (Harben). The college had been suppressed in 1548 and the church pulled down. It was replaced by a large strong frame of Timber and bricke Gap in transcription. Reason: Editorial omission for reasons of length or relevance. Use only in quotations in born-digital documents.[…] and imployed as a store house of Marchantes goodes brought from the sea (Stow). In 1613 however, after Stow’s death, the church was restored (Harben). There continues to be a church on the site to the present day.
All Hallows Barking is found on the Agas map at the east end of Tower Street labelled Barkyng. It is also featured on Benjamin Cole’s 1754 engraving of Tower Street Ward (Cole).
