From the Thames Valley University web site: "The Inns of Chancery: The Inns of Court, which have survived to today are the Middle Temple, Inner Temple, Lincoln's Inn and Gray's Inn. In addition there were a number of Inns of Chancery. These probably had the function of training and housing medieval Chancery clerks. Later they became affiliated to the Inns of Court. By the 18th century the Inns of Chancery ceased to have any educational function and had become social clubs for attorneys and solicitors. They have disappeared as institutions but their names are to be found in street names, buildings and on plaques. The Inns of Chancery included: [...] Staple Inn (this has survived physically and is situated behind the façade of 16th century shops in High Holborn; it was originally a wool warehouse - thus the name 'staple' - its crest is a sack of wool)"

The ``new'' Church of St. Mary's Stoke Newington was built in the 1850s in response to the rapid growth of the local population. The Rector, the Rev. Thomas Jackson, offered the site of the old rectory and garden for a new church to be built opposite the 300 year-old Old Church.

The architect George Gilbert Scott (later knighted) was appointed to the project, and designed a building in the style of thirteenth century Gothic. The new St. Mary's was consecrated by the Lord Bishop of London on June 25, 1858: it stretches 180 feet (55m) from the inside line of the apse to the west door, and is 80 feet (25m) wide from north to south transept.

The original plan foresaw a spire soaring 220 feet (65m), but it was to be 45 years before this was finally added to the building. Floodlighting was added at Easter 1996.
