Suffolk Lane

According to Stow, Suffolk Lane ran north-south between Candlewick Street and Thames Street. Our Agas coordinates are based on Stow, who writes that it was positioned between Bush Lane and St. Laurence Lane. Such a lane, though drawn, is not labelled on the Agas map. The Agas map position relative to St. Laurence Poultney Churchyard of this unlabelled lane also accords with Stow’s account of Suffolk Lane. Suffolk Lane is marked on the 1520 map as extending north from Wolsies Lane (A Map of Tudor London, 1520). However, its position on that map does not align with Stow’s account of its position with respect to the St. Laurence Poultney Churchyard.
We are awaiting further confirmation of this street’s position.
