History of St Mary-le-Tower, Ipswich, Suffolk.

A church is mentioned near the location of the present St Mary-le-Tower, in the Doomsday book of 1086.  By 1177 a college of Augustinian cannons had been installed.  In 1200, the Charter of King John, making Ipswich into a borough, was read in St Mary’s.

The Marion cult of the 13th and 14th century caused six churches in the area to be dedicated to St Mary, this in turn meant that the churches were given additional suffix names, four of these churches remain, St Mary at Elms, St Mary at Quay, St Mary at Stoke and St Mary-le-Tower.

In the 1850’s, St Mary-le-Tower was effectively demolished and a new church was built in its stead, under the auspices of the diocesan architect, Richard M. Phipson  This church is much bigger and lighter than its predecessor, however, it retains only a few of the earlier features; the 18th century pulpit was nearly destroyed, the tester was for some years used as an hall table.  The 15th century font was moved to a different part of the church.  The memorial tablets were moved into “discreet” corners. Finally the 15th century misericords were moved into new stalls.
