     Notes:
1 Not rebuilt after the fire of 1666, parts of the churchyard lasted into the mid- 1980s. Set into the rear of 70-74 Cannon Street is a little stone monument commemorating the church.     
2 At the time of or shortly after the Norwich taxatio of 1254 the patron was stated as William son of Reynerus: SPM WD9 53 (LuntNorwich 333); but by 1303 the advowson was in the hands of St Helen's nunnery in London: MunimentaRiley2i 236 (LCLOA 182). There is mention of a rector in 1318 (RegBaldock 187), but the nearest extant presentation seems to be in 1373 (RegSudbury1 288, and see NewcourtRep1 370-1).
