Also known as Halliwell, or Halywell, it was refounded by Sir Thomas Lovell in the sixteenth century, who was buried there. It stood at Holywell Lane on the west side of Shoreditch towards Hoxton and was sometimes said to be a Benedictine foundation and attributed to a Bishop of London. It was, however, established by Robert Fitz Generan in the twelfth century.
