The Herber

The Herber was a mansion on the east side of Dowgate Street, near to the church of St. Mary Bothaw (Harben). The derivation of the name is uncertain but Prideaux suggests it is derived from Arbour while Lappenburg suggests the French erbois or Grasplatz which means garden (qtd. in Harben). Richard Neville, the Fifth Earl of Salisbury, was lodged there at the beginning of the War of the Roses in 1457 (Harben; Stow 1598, sig. F1v). According to Stow, the Herber was later inhabited by Sir Francis Drake (Stow 1633, sig. Y5r). In modern London, a portion of Canon Street Station stands on the original site (Harben).
