Back to St Michael's Church, Theydon Mount

Image Description

The church seen here today was completed in 1614. It was built by Sir William Smith, and was consecrated by John King, Bishop of London. Sir William's uncle, Sir Thomas Smith, was in the process of re-building Hill Hall when he died in 1577. His monument is housed on the north side of the chancel, having been moved from the previous church that stood on the site, which was destroyed by lightning in 1611.
