IIRC after the dissolution of the monasteries (including Greyfriars) part of
the church of Greyfriars was taken over as a parish church and assigned a
parish. It was known as Christchurch, Greyfriars. Rebuilt after the Great
Fire of 1666. Apart from the steeple it was destroyed in WW2. Registers
should be in the Guildhall Library. Newgate was the strret in which it
stands. A search on Google should reveal a wealth of info.
