Holmes College

Holmes College, also known as the Chapel of the Holy Ghost and the Chapel of St. Mary Magdalen, was located on the north side of St. Paul’s Cathedral (Stow 1598, sig. S5r, S8v). It was founded by Roger Holmes in 1400 and is also where Holmes was buried (Stow 1598, sig. S5r, S8v). Other persons of note buried in Holmes College include sheriff and mayor Adam de Bury (Stow 1598, sig. S8v). The chapel is labelled Holmes College on the 1520 map (A Map of Tudor London, 1520).
The chapel was suppressed during the reign of Edward VI (Stow 1598, sig. S5r-S5v).
