Most of the slum areas were gutted bit the more affluent areas escaped as by the time it reached these areas the garrison at the Tower of London used gunpowder to create firebreaks to stop further spread.

The Great Plague (1665-1666) with it's high mortality rate within London when some 100,000 deaths, estimated as being 20% of Londons population ,that in 1670 a Rebuilding Act was passed, at the head of this committee was Sir. Christopher Wren, one of the most highly acclaimed English architects who was responsible for buuilding St. Pauls Cathedral.

The committee had to decide which of the churches was to be rebuilt, 51 were chosen but St. Marys, Bothaw was not amongst them. The land where the church stood is to the South of Cannon Street, & was under the Patronage of Canterbury Cathedral.
