The Wrestlers (Lime Street Ward)

The Wrestlers was a house in Bishopsgate Ward located on the north side of Camomile Street, near the Wall and Bishopsgate (Stow). The house predates the Wrestlers Court located on the opposite (south) side of Camomile Street. Wrestlers Court was named after the house, which was later renamed Clark’s Court (for the location of Clark’s Court’s, see Blome’s 1755 engraving of Bishopsgate Ward). There are few details about the Wrestlers in historical records.
For Stow, the house is important only as the boundary marker between Lime Street Ward and Bishopsgate Ward (Stow).
Though the Wrestlers itself is not featured on the Agas map, the house would have been directly west of the wall surrounding St. Augustine Papey and east of Bishopsgate.
