The Church of St. Mary, Aldermanbury, also known today as the Winston Churchill Memorial and Library, was redesigned by Sir Christopher Wren in the 17th century. Wren was architect and builder of St. Paul’s Cathedral and many other London churches.

In 1965 it was moved, piece by piece from London, England to Westminster College, Fulton, MO, and reassembled over a period of four years.”

A Heritage That Spans Nearly Four Centuries.

On September 29, 1653, Allen Robinett and Margaret Symm exchanged wedding vows in London, England’s 12th century Church of St. Mary, Aldermanbury. After 28 years of marriage, Robinett purchased land in the New World from William Penn and, in 1682, moved his wife and two of their children to the British North American colony that later became the state of Pennsylvania.

More than 350 years later, Robinett descendants – with numerous surname spellings, including Robinette and Robnett – now number more than 1,000,000 in the United States.
