Parish History

'St Mary-le-Strand, the church of, is situated in the middle of the Strand opposite the south end of Drury Lane, and nearly opposite Somerset House.

'The original church belonging to this parish is mentioned so early as 1222, when it was called St Mary, and the Innocents of the Strand. It then stood in a spacious church yard, on the south side of the Strand, where the eastern wing of Somerset House is now built; but was taken down, as is mentioned in the preceding article [see St Mary Staining], and that of St John the Baptist, in the Savoy, (see those articles,) by order of Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset, to make way for his palace, named after him, Somerset House. The parishioners used the chapel of St John aforesaid, till the act of parliament passed for erecting the fifty new churches, when the first stone of this building was laid on the 25th of Feb. 1714, and was finished and consecrated on the 1st Jan. 1723, when instead of its ancient name, it was called St Mary-le-Strand. This church was the first of the fifty new churches, and was erected from the designs of James Gibbs, architect, to the church of St Martin in the Fields.

'The church is a rectory, in the diocese of London, in the county and archdeaconry of London, in the county and archdeaconry of Middlesex, and in the patronage of the Lord Chancellor.'[1]
