St Augustine Papey was a mediaeval church in the City of London situated in what is now Bury 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].
