A church dedicated to St Peter is said to have stood on the site of Westminster Abbey as early as the 7th century and was named to distinguish it from the “Eastminster”, St Mary-of-the-Graces. Officially known as the Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Westminster, Westminster Abbey was founded by Edward the Confessor in 1065 as his place of intercession.
