Legges Alley

Several names were used interchangeably to refer to Legges Alley, a title that conjures an association with Thomas Leggy, a skinner whose will was enrolled in 1357 (Ekwall 174). In the fourtheenth century, the location was variously known as Legge’s Aleye, Leggesaleye, or Legges aleye, and Logges Alley circa 1548 (Ekwall 174). Henry Harben notes that the location was Identified in Vestry Minute Book of the parish of St. Bartholomew the Litell in entries of the sixteenth century with Nagg’s Head Court (Harben 347).
