St Olave Old Jewry (Poultry) (1.24 mi. north of city centre) was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1666, and rebuilt in 1670-76. St Martin Pomeroy (Ironmonger, Iremonger) was united to St Olave Old Jewry in 1670, and St Mildred Poultry & St Mary Colechurch were both united to St Olave in 1871. All four were united to St. Margaret Lothbury in 1886 (St Olave was demolished in 1888-1891). St Olave parish records are in the Guildhall Library: baptisms 1538/9-1884, marriages 1538/9-1886, banns 1771-1803 & 1824-86, burials 1538-1849. For later baptisms, marriages and banns, see St Margaret Lothbury which have been retained by the incumbent. A partial index to baptisms and marriages 1538-1885 is in the IGI.
