[ The "Churches of the City of London" Reynolds,H: London, Bodley Head, 1922] In 1670 a Rebuilding Act was passed and a committee set up under the stewardship of Sir Christopher Wren to decide which would be rebuilt. [ "Wren" Whinney,M London Thames & Hudson, 1971 ISBN 0500201129] Fifty-one were chosen, but St Thomas the Apostle in Vintry Ward [The parish extended into Cordwainer Ward "A Dictionary of London" Harben, H.: London, Herbert Jenkins, 1918 ] was one of the unlucky minority never to be rebuilt.

[ "A Letter to the Parishioners of the united Parishes of St. Mary Aldermary, and St. Thomas the Apostle, in the City of London, on the non-payment of their Tithes" (1835) British Library Catalogue Ref: 003944680] Partial records still survive at IGI.
