St Martin Pomeroy - The Worshipful Company of Parish Clerks

St Martin Pomeroy

• Originally called St Martin Pomary, the tiny church was formerly situated in Ironmonger Lane, Cheapside, and is supposed by Stowe, to have received its addition from Pomary, an apple garden, but it is possible that the Pomarys family might have had some connection with its patronage. It is also thought that the name could have derived from a Latin name referring to an open space.

• It was also known as St Martin Iremonger.

• The ancient church was destroyed in the Great Fire and the parish was united to that of St Olave Jewry, by act of Parliament.
