St Andrew Hubbard was a parish church in the City of London destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666.

History

The church was situated close to Philpot Lane.[1] in the area known as Little Eastcheap [2] and took its name from Hubert, a mediaeval benefactor. Its parish records are among the most detailed in the UK[3] and have been extensively researched,[4] for example they tell us it was a thriving but rat-prone living.

The majority of the churches in the City of London were destroyed by the Great Fire in 1666, following which a Rebuilding Act was passed and a committee set up under Sir Christopher Wren to decide which would be rebuilt.[5] Fifty-one were chosen, but St Andrew Hubbard was one of those not to be rebuilt.[6] Instead the parish was united with that of St Mary-at-Hill[7] and the site used to build the Royal Weigh House.[8] A Parish boundary mark can be found in nearby Philpot Lane. Today Citibank occupies part of the site.[9]
