St. Mary's Church

The church is at Fort St. George. The old masonry church was consecrated in 1680 by Streynsham Master. The building with its three arched aisles has a bomb-proof roof. Well known people associated with the church include Robert Clive, who married Margaret Maskelyne here in 1753. Job Charnock, an official in the British East India Company, is thought to have had three daughters baptized here in 1889. The marriage of Governor Elihu Yale (of Yale University fame) was the first to be performed in this church. Now this national monument is maintained by the Archaeological Department of the Government
