Staining Lane ran north-south, starting at Maiden Lane in the south and turning into Oat Lane in the north. It is drawn correctly on the Agas map and is labelled as Stayning la. It served as a boundary between Cripplegate and Aldersgate wards.
According to Stow, Staining Lane is named after the Painter stainers dwelling there (1:304). Maitland refutes this claim, arguing that Staining Lane ... was so called, not because stainers lived in it, but because it once contained the haws of the men of Staines (Maitland 181). Stow further complicates the etymological lineage: he states that St. Mary Staining is named because it standeth at the North ende of Stayning lane (1:305). However, Harben, Cobb, and Maitland agree that Staining Lane was named after the church and not the other way around (Harben; Cobb 32; Maitland 181). Besides the church, another important site was Haberdashers’ Hall, located at the corner of Staining Lane and Maiden Lane.
Staining Lane survives today, between Gresham Street in the south and Oat Lane in the north.
