St.Dunstan at Stepney, alias Stebon Hythe or Heath, a Church probably built before St. Dunstan above mentioned, and dedicated to All Saints; but being rebuilt or repaired in his Life Time, or a little afterwards, it was then dedicated to his Memory. This Parish is of greater Extent than any in the World, if that were true, that it extends to the Isle of St. Helen in the East Indies; however it consists of about 9000 Dwelling Houses. Morning Pr. every Week day at 11; Evening Pr. at 3 in Winter, and 6 in Summer; Sac. administered every first and second Sunday of the Month at 12.
