St Augustine Papey was a mediaeval church in the City of London situated just south of London Wall opposite the north end of St. Mary Axe Street.[1] First mentioned as "Sci augustini pappey",[2] it originally belonged to the Priory of Holy Trinity.[3] By 1430, the emoluments had become so small that it was united with All Hallows-on-the-Wall and in 1442 was appropriated as an almshouse for elderly clergy.[4] At the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries it was demolished and the site built over.[5] The churchyard was acquired by St Martin Outwich in 1539, and survives to this day on Camomile Street [6]
