Strand Inn

The Strand Inn was not known as such until the Tudor period during Henry VII’s reign (Williams 1458). In 1412, Strand Inn was first mentioned under its original name, Chester Inn, by poet Thomas Hoccleve in his work De Regimine Principum, which he wrote for the Prince of Wales (Williams 1457). In said piece he states, in modern Yankee phraseology, that he dwelt in Chestre Inne right fast by the Stronde (Williams 1457). As an Inn of Court, one of the institutes most reputable students was John Ford (William 1458).
In 1549, Edward Seymour, the Duke of Somerset, obliterated the Strand Inn along with some of the surrounding buildings to build Somerset House (Williams 1458).
