Malmesbury, Wiltshire



VICARS OF THE CHURCH OF ST. PAUL, AND
THE ABBEY CHURCH, MALMESBURY



From 1301 until the mid 16th century, the parish church of Malmesbury was St. Pauls.  This stood in what is now Birdcage Walk (its steeple remains and is now the Abbey Belltower).

In 1539 Malmesbury Abbey ceased to exist as a monastic community, as a result of the dissolution of the English monasteries by Henry VIII, and in August 1541 Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, licensed the Abbey Church to replace St. Paul's as the parish church of Malmesbury.

In 1879 the ancient chapelries of Corston and Rodbourne were made into a separate parish, and St. Mary Westport was united to the Abbey Church.
