roseAgas Map
St. Thomas Hospital was a hospital and parish church in London. According to Stow, St. Thomas Hospital was founded as a church and almshouse in 1213 by Richard Dunton. It was located in Southwark, and Stow writes that it was against the wall of St. Saviour (Southwark), though is not labelled on the Agas Map. The religious hospital was dissolved in 1538 and then granted to the City of London in 1552. It thereafter functioned as a workehouse for the poore and idle persons of the citie (Stow 1598, sig. Z2v). Through this transition, Stow continues, the site remaineth now as it was before, a parish church.
