Confirming, after searching the records concerning St Olive’s, that Wm Wilkinson was curate and farmer of the small tithes, and received £6 p.a. Queen Elizabeth conveyed the profits in 28th year of her reign to Sir Christopher Hatton. He passed them to Sir Thos. Cromptom who, in 38 Eliz. obtained the annexation of St Gyles to St Olave’s with a yearly allowance of 5 marks in-lieu of £6. Whoever served the cure could expect only 5 marks and whatever the parish might give him.
