St. Katherine Coleman

St. Katherine Coleman stood on the south side of Fenchurch Street in Aldgate Ward. There are three main theories regarding the origin of Coleman in the church’s name. It may have been in reference to a great Haw yard, or Garden, of olde time called Coleman haw in the parish (Stow). It may also refer to a builder or restorer who worked on the church. Finally, it may have been that Fenchurch Street was once called Coleman Street (Harben).
St. Katherine Coleman was also called St. Katherine and All Saints and All Hallows Coleman Church (Harben). The church can be found on the Agas map, west of Northumberland House. It is labelled S. Katerin colmans. The church is also found in the same place on Richard Blome’s 1720 map of Aldgate Ward (Blome)
