The Church of Saint John the Evangelist

 

The Church of Saint John the Evangelist was a former Church of Ireland church located on the west side of Fishamble Street in the center of old Dublin, Ireland.  Some of its parish records survive.

 

According to Sir John Gilbert the church was built in 1168 by a native Irishman called Giolla Michell.  [viii]   The church was then attached to the Church of the Most Holy Trinity (Christ Church), which was run by the Augustinian Order. Fishamble Street, in those times reached only as far as the Music Hall, the rest, where the church was located, was called Bothestret. In the church there was a chapel to St. Mary and one to St. John, which was used by the Guild of Tailors. [ix]

 

An Arland Ussher (died 1557), nephew of the Mayor of Dublin, rebuilt the church. The new church consisted of a chancel, nave and two aisles. There were vaults underneath the church and a belfry contained three bells.  [x]

 

The church was re-built in 1681. Its walls were only 24 feet high. There were 42 pews, which were shared among several families. The names Bird, Bladen, Hutchinson, Forster, Crumpe, Crossart, Thompson, Grimes, Reeves, Stacey and Shipley, among others, are recorded.  [xi]
