The original registers of St. Mary Staining which survive are at the
Guildhall Library. The parish was united to St. Michael Wood Street
in 1670; to St. Alban Wood Street 1894; to St. Vedast Foster Lane 1957.

Some of the baptisms are in the IGI. The Baptism register 1673-1812
survives. Marriages from 1754 are in St. Michael Wood Street.

All other registers of the parish were destroyed by enemy action in
1940. However there are bishops transcripts of baptisms marriages
and burials for 1629-31 and for baptisms for 1813-20. There are
receipts for burials (with names of deceased) in the churchwardens'
accounts 1644-78 and 1707-18, 1718-49, 1749-99 and 1800-36. There
are bishops transcrips of burials 1800-3 and 1805-20.

Not a particularly promising collection, I'm afraid.
