King’s College Mansion

Stow refers to King’s College Mansion variously as the Prior of Okebornes House. In recording the history of the location, Stow records the location by describing it as one great Messuage, of old time belonging to the Priorie of Okeborne in Wilshire, and was the Priors lodging when he repayred to London (Stow 2:13-14). Stow further notes that the mansion was given to King’s College, Cambridge. In terms of its location, the site was located in Castle Baynard Ward just north of the Blackfriars Stars, on the east side of Water Lane.
