Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint James in the Wall, Monkwell Street, was an ancient hermitage, a cell of Garadon Monastery, Leicestershire. In 1543 William Lambe purchased the chapel and it was bequeathed by him to the Clothworkers' Company in 1577, and the "reader" of the chapel appears to have acted as chaplain to the Company. It was therefore also known as Lamb's Chapel. The chapel was rebuilt in 1825, before being pulled down in 1872.
