Bride's (St.), or, St. Bridget's, a church on the south side of Fleet Street, in the ward of Farringdon Without.

Then is the parish church of St. Bridges or Bride, of old time a small thing, which now remaineth to be the choir, but since increased with a large body and side-aisles towards the west, at the charges of William Venor, esquire, Warden of the Fleet, about the year 1480.—Stow, p. 147.
