St. Augustine Inn

Located between St. Olave (Southwark) and the Bridge House, St. Augustine Inn was the London residence for the Abbot of St. Augustine from the thirteenth century until the Dissolution of the Monasteries (Malden). According to John Stow, St. Augustine Inn was an auncient péece of worke, and séemeth to bee one of the first builded houses on that side the riuer, ouer against the citie (Stow 1598, sig. Z3r). The Earls of Warren and Surrey appear to have owned the property for some time before the Abbots of St. Augustine (Stow 1598, sig. Z3r). After the Dissolution of the Monasteries, St. Augustine Inn became the property of the St. Leger family and was divided into multiple tenements. Thereafter, the property came to be known as Sentlegar House or St. Legar House (Rendle 267). St. Augustine Inn is located within the boundaries of the Agas map, though it is not labelled.
