St. Mary Magdalen (Southwark)

According to Stow, St. Mary Magdalen was originally a large chapel dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene, which was attached to St. Saviour (Southwark). St. Mary Magdalen was founded by Peter des Roches during the thirteenth century and later became a parish church (Stow 1598, sig. Y7v). During the Dissolution of the Monasteries, St. Mary Magdalen and St. Margaret were absorbed into the Parish of St. Saviour (Southwark). The location that previously held St. Mary Magdalen was incorporated into St. Saviour (Southwark), the new parish church.
