Which Parish?
« on: Wednesday 22 July 20 13:08 BST (UK) »
This should be a London parish but the penny hasn't dropped what this says!

Suggestions welcome.

It looks like (squiggle)ulchers to me  :-\
The closest I can think of is St Sepulchres  :-\
Hopefully hd or bookbox will be along soon.

JenB has the answer, as far as I can divine.

See extract from Strype's Survey here (search for Pulchers Parish):

https://www.dhi.ac.uk/strype/TransformServlet?page=book3_130

St Sepulchre's, Newgate Street, Christ's Hospital and Christchurch Greyfriars Church Garden are all within 100 metres or so.

It must just be an unusual P.  I don't believe the first part of the squiggle is a contraction of the Se, but I could be wrong.

ADDED:

I should have said: ...the original site of Christ's Hospital...
