Mountjoy’s Inn (Knightrider Street)

Mountjoy’s Inn, known variously as Monte Jovis Inn or Montjufusyn was, according to Victor Belcher and Martha Carlin, founded by Henry II as a cell to the Hospital de Monte Jovis on the Great St Bernard Pass (Carlin and Belcher 80). Stow observes that the house was fair and large (qtd. in Carlin and Belcher 81).
This location has been added to the MoEML gazetteer on the authority of Carlin and Belcher’s gazetteer of 1520 London.
