Woodroffe Lane

Woodroffe Lane ran north-south from Crutched Friars south to Tower Hill. The lane was in Aldgate Ward and was named after the Woodruffe family (Harben). Stow writes that the lane was a place of great benevolence. There were fourteen proper almes houses built from brick and wood in Woodruffe Lane and the tenants haue their dewllinges rent free, and ii.s. iiii.d. the peece: the first day of euery moneth for euer (Stow).
Woodruffe Lane, later renamed Cooper’s Row and also known as Woodruffe Lane and Woodross Lane, appears on the Agas map running from Crutched Friars through to Tower Hill. It bears the label Woodroß la.
