The origins of St Thomas' Hospital lie in an infirmary established to the south of London Bridge by the Augustinian Priory of St Mary Overy in 1106. It was subsequently named after St Thomas Becket who was canonised in 1173. The Hospital was re-built between 1212 and 1215 to the east of Borough High Street after a fire destroyed the original building. The Hospital was closed by Henry VIII during the Reformation but was reopened by Edward VI.
