St Michael Le Querne,
(1.24 mi. north of city centre), London
St Michael Le Querne (1.24 mi. north of city centre) was destroyed by the Great Fire in 1666, and not rebuilt. It was united to St Vedast Foster Lane. Parish records are in the Guildhall Library:baptisms 1813-84, marriages 1813-36, burials 1813-49. For later baptisms and for marriages 1754-1813 see St Vedast Foster Lane. Registers of baptisms 1685/6-1812, marriages 1686-1705 and burials 1685/6-1812 were damaged beyond repair in 1940. There are no marriage registers later than 1836 surviving for this parish. A partial index to baptisms and marriages 1837-1877 is in the IGI. No Combs entries have been located in this source; however, there was an early John COMBE of record in le Querne:ca 1405 6 HENRY IV. Chancery: Inquisitions Ad Quod Damnum, Henry III to Richard III. C 143/436/6.
