St. James Duke’s Place

According to Stow, St. James Duke’s Place was built on the grounds of Duke’s Place, which was converted from the Holy Trinity Priory after the priory’s dissolution in 1531.
The 1633 edition of Stow recounts the reconstruction of a church upon the ruins of the priory alongside Duke’s Place. Approval for this reconstruction was granted by James I. The inscription indicates the church’s dedication to both James I and St. James, hence the name St. James Duke’s Place (Stow 1633, sig. O1v-O3r).
The buildings on the site were destroyed in the Great Fire and then rebuilt (Sugden 281). The church was active until 1874 (Sugden 281).
