Noble Street ran north-south between Maiden Lane in the south and Silver Street in the north. It is all of Aldersgate street ward (Stow). On the Agas map, it is labelled as Noble Str. and is depicted as having a right-hand curve at its north end, perhaps due to an offshoot of the London Wall.
Stow remarks that
Shelley house (of old time so called, as belonging to the Shelleyes) Sir Thomas Shelley, knight, was owner thereof in the I. of H. the 4. It is now called Bacon house, because the same was new builded by sir Nicholas Bacon Lord Keeper of the great Seale. Down on that side by Sergeant Fleetwoods house, Recorder of London, who also new builded it.
(Stow)
At the north end of Noble Street sat the parrish church of S. Olaue in Siluer Streete, a small thing, and without any noteworthy monuments (Stow).
Noble Street survives in modern London. It has been straightened and extended with a cyclist lane added on to its north end.
