Notes: St Mark's Church was built in 1838-9 and demolished in 1927.
St Mark Whitechapel (Goodman's Fields), 1839-1925, also known as St Mark, Tenter Ground.
The church was built in 1838 by the Metropolis Churches Fund, at a cost of 5,265 11s 1d to designs by Thomas Henry Wyatt and David Brandon (their first London church) and consecrated on 30 May 1839, to serve a poor and populous district. The parish was carved out of St Mary Whitechapel, by Order in Council of 1 April 1841. The Dowager Queen Adelaide provided 25 towards the building of a Sunday and infant school. National Schools, to designs by John Hudson of 40 Leman Street, were established that year between Chamber Street and Royal Mint Street (the boys section was rebuilt in 1862), where a parish hall was also built. (Nearby was a boarding school for Jewish orphans.)
