Katherine (St.) Coleman Churchyard
Katherine (St.) Cree
It was erected within the churchyard of the Priory of Holy Trinity, and in early records is frequently referred to as the "church or chapel of St. Katherine" within the church-yard of the church of Holy Trinity (Ct. H. Wills, I. 282, 594 ; II. 184, 250, 371.)
From a decree of the Bishop of London, 1414, set out in full in Strype (ed. 1720, 1. ii. 56) it appears that the parishioners of St. Katherine's used to attend the Priory Church of Holy Trinity, but that there was so much confusion owing to the canons holding their services there at the same times, that they built themselves a church or chapel dedicated to St. Katherine in the churchyard of Holy Trinity, and only attended the Priory Church en certain special occasions.
