St John the Baptist upon Walbrook was a church in the City of London.



First mentioned in the 12th Century,[1] the parish was renovated in 1621.[2]


The Mortality Bill for the year 1665, published by the Parish Clerk’s Company, shows 97 parishes within the City of London.[3] By September 6th the city lay in ruins, 86 churches having been destroyed.[4] In 1670 a Rebuilding Act was passed and a committee set up under the stewardship of Sir Christopher Wren to decide which would be rebuilt.[5] Fifty-one were chosen, but St John the Baptist in Walbrook Ward[6] was one of the unlucky minority never to be rebuilt.[7] . Following the fire it was united to St Antholin, Budge Row.[8] Partial records still survive at IGI.[9].
