uernment of William Faringdon the Father, and Nicholas his son,
by the space of 82. yeares, and retaineth their name vntill this pre-
sent day.
This Warde of Faringdon within the walles, is bounded thus:
Beginning in the East, at the great Crosse in West Cheape, from
whence it runneth West. On the North side from the parish church
of S. Peter
, (which is at the Southwest corner of Woodstréete) vnto
Guthurums Lane, and downe that Lane, to Hugon Lane on the

West side of Noble stréete.
Then by the said wal downe to Winsor house, (or Neuils Inne)

and on the West side, till the South corner of the said Church.
Then againe along Cheape to the old Exchaunge, and downe

stine
, (which church and one house next adioyning in Watheling
stréete
, be of this Warde) and on the West side of this Lane, to the
gate which entereth the South church yard of Saint Paules, and

, which is some twelue houses
short of Aue Mary Lane: the West side of which Lane, is of this
Warde.
Then at the South ende of Aue Mary Lane, is Creed Lane:
the West side whereof, is also of this Warde.
Now betwixt the South ende of Aue Mary Lane, and the
North ende of Creede Lane, is the comming out of Powles
Church yarde
. On the East, and the high stréete called Bowier
Rowe
, to Ludgate on the West side: which way to Ludgate is of
this Warde. On the North side whereof, is Saint Martins church.
And on the South side, the turning into the blacke Friers.
Nowe to turne vp againe to the North ende of Aue Mary
Lane
, there is a short Lane which runneth West some small di-
stance, and is there closed vp with a gate into a great house: and this
is called Amen Lane.
Then on the North side of Pater Noster Rowe, beginning at
the conduit ouer against the Olde Exchaunge Lane ende, and go-
ing west by Saint Michæls church. At the west ende of which
church, is a small passage through the Church, towards the North.
And beyond this church some small distance, is an other passage,

, where the Warde endeth for that stréete.
And then about some dozen houses (which is of Baynards Ca-
stle Warde
) to UUarwike Lane ende: which UUarwicke Lane,
stretcheth North to the high stréete of Newgate Market. And the
west side of UUarwicke Lane is of this Faringdon UUarde. For
the East side of UUarwick Lane, of Aue Mary Lane, and of Creed
Lane
, with the UUest ende of Pater Noster Rowe, are all of
Baynards Castle UUarde.
Yet (to begin againe at the said Conduit by the old Exchange)
on the North side thereof, is a large stréete that runneth vp to New-
gate
, as is aforesaid. The first part or Southside whereof, from the
conduit to the Shambles, is called Bladder stréete. Then on the
backe side of the shambles, be diuers slaughter houses, and such like,
pertaining to the shambles, and this is called Mount-Godard stréet.
Then is the Shambles it selfe. And then Newgate Market. And
so the whole stréete on both sides vp to Newgate, is of this UUarde,
and thus it is wholly bounded.
Monuments in this UUarde, there be these. First the great
Crosse in UUest cheape
.
Crosse in
Cheape
buil-
ded.
But in the warde of Faringdon, the which
crosse was first erected in that place, in the yeare 1291. in the 19. of
Edward the firſt
, vpon this occasion.
Queene Elianor his wife, dyed at Herdeby (a Towne neare
vnto the citie of Lincolne) her bodie was brought from thence to
Westminster. And this King (in memorie of her) caused at euery
place (where the bodie was staied in the way) a stately crosse of
stone to be made and erected, with the Quéenes Image and Armes
vpon it: as at Grantham, Woborne, Northampton, Stony Strat-
foord, Dunstable, S. Albons, Waltham, West Cheape
, and at
Charing, from whence she was conueyed to Westminster, and
there buried.
This Crosse in west cheape, being like to those other, which re-
maine till this day, and being by length of time decaied, Iohn Ha-
therley
being Maior, procured in the yeare 1441. license of King
Henry the 6
. in

the 21. of his raigne, to reedifie the same in more
bewtifull maner, for the honor of the citie: and had also license to take
vp 200. fodar of lead, for the building therof, and of certain conduits,
and a common Gramarie, and it was very curiously wrought,

the ſecond of Henry the ſeuenth. It was newe gilt all ouer in the
yeare 1522. against the comming in of Charles, the fift Emperor,
and was new burnished against the Coronation of Edward the ſixt.
And gilt againe in the yeare 1554. against the comming in of king
Philip
. Since the which time, the said Crosse

hauing bene presented
by diuers Iuries (or Wardmote Inquests) to stand in the highway,
to the let of carriages, &c. In the yeare 1581. the 21. of Iune in the
night, the lowest Images about the said Crosse, were broken and
defaced.
Wherupon proclamation was made, that who so wold bewray the
doers therof, shuld haue fortie crownes: but nothing came to light.
The Image of the blessed virgin at the time robbed of her son, and
her armes broken by which shee staied him on her knées, her whole
bodie also was strained with ropes so as it was readie to fall: But
was in the yeare 1595. againe fastened and repaired. In the yeare
1596. about Bartholomewtide1, a new Sonne mishapen (as borne
out of time) was laide in her armes. The other Images remaining
broken as before.
On the East side
Thames wa-
ter conueyed
to the Crosse
in Cheape
.
of the same Crosse, the steppes being taken
thence, vnder the Image of Christes resurrection, was set vp a
curious wrought frame of grey Marble, and in the same an Image
in Alablaster of a woman, (for the most part naked) and Thames
water prilling from her breasts: but the same is oft times dryed
vp.
At the Southwest corner of Woodstréete, is the parish Church
of S. Peter
the Apostle, by the said Crosse, a proper Church lately
new builded. Iohn Shawe Goldsmith Maior, deceased 1503. appoin-
ted by his Testament, the said Church and stéeple to be newly buil-
ded of his goods, with a flat roofe. Notwithstanding Tho. Wood
Goldsmith; one of the Sheriffes, 1491. is accounted principall be-
nefactor: because the roofe of the middle Ile is supported by Images
of Woodmen. I finde to haue bene buried in this Church, Nicholas
Farendon
Maior, Richard Hadley Grocer, 1492. Iohn Palmer
Fishmonger, 1500. William Rouse Goldsmith Sheriffe, 1429.
T. Atkins Esquire, 1400. Ioh. Butlar Sherif, 1420. Ioh. Palmer,
253
Henry Warley Alderman, 1524. Sir Iohn Monday Goldsmith
Maior, deceased, 1537. Augustin Hinde Cloath-worker, one
of the Sheriffes in the yeare 1550. whose Monument doth yet re-
maine, the others be gone.
The long shop, or narrow shed, incroching on the high way be-
fore this Church, was licensed to be made in the yeare 1401. for
thirtie shillings foure pence the yeares rent, but now increased
much.
Then is Guthuruns lane,
Long shop or
shead by the
Crosse in
Cheape
.
so called of Guthurun, sometime
owner thereof. The inhabitants of this lane, of olde time were gold-
beaters, as doth appeare by records in the Exchequer. For the ea-
sterling money was appointed to be made of fine siluer, such as men
made into foyle, and was commonly called siluer of Guthuruns
lane
, &c. The Embrotherers Hall is in this lane. Iohn Throwstone
Embrotherer, then Goldsmith, Sheriffe, deceased 1519. gaue
fortie pound towards the purchase of this Hall. Hugon Lane on the
East side, and Kery lane (called of one Kery) on the West.
Then in the high stréet on the same North side, is the Sadlers Hall.
And then Fauster lane (so called) of Saint Fausters, a faire church,
lately new builded. Henry Coote Goldsmith, one of the Sheriffes
deceased 1509. builded S. Dunstons chappell there. Iohn Throw-
stone
, one of the Sheriffes, gaue to the building therof, one hundred
pound, by his testamēt. Iohn Browne Seriant Painter, Alderman,
deceased 1532. was a great benefactor, and was there buried. Wil-
liam Tryst
Selerar to the King 1425. Iohn Standelfe, and Iohn
Standelfe
Goldsmithes, lye buried there. Richard Galder 1544.
Agnes wife to William Milborne Chamberlaine of London,
1500. &c.
Then downe Fausterlane and Noble stréete, at the North end
whereof, is one great house builded of stone, commonly called the
Lord Windsors house, but I haue read it by the name of Neuels
Inne
in siluer stréete, and at the ende of Monkes well stréete.
In this streete on the west side thereof, is the Barbers Chi-
rurgians Hall
, whom obtained their incorporation in the yeare
one thouſand foure hundred ſixtie and foure, the ſecond of Ed-
ward
the fourth
, since the which time, they builded theyr
Hall.

254
At the North corner of this stréete, on the same side, was sometime
an Hermitage, (or Chappell of Saint Iames) called in the Wall,
neare Cripplegate: it belonged to the Abbey and Couent of Gara-
don, as appeareth by a record of Edward the firſt in the twentie
ſeuen yeare
. And by a record of Edward the third, the ſixtéenth
yeare
. William de Lyons was Hermit there, and the Abbot and
Couent of Geredon, founded two Chapleins, cistercian Monkes of
their house: in this Hermitage, one of them was founded there, for
Aymor de Valence, Earle of Pembrooke, and Mary de Saint
Paule
, his Countesse.
Of these Monkes, and of a well pertaining to them, the stréete
tooke that name, and is called Monkes-well streete. This Hermi-
tage with the purtenāces, was in the raigne of Edward the ſixt pur-
chased from the said King, by William Lambe one of the gentlemen
of the kings Chappell, Citizen and cloathworker of London: he de-
ceased in the yeare 1577. and then gaue it to the Cloath-workers
in London: with other Tenements, to the value of fiftie pound
the yeare, to the intent they shall hire a Minister to say diuine ser-
uice there, &c.
Againe to the high stréete of Cheape, from Fauster lane ende
to S. Martins, and by that Lane to the Shambels or flesh market,
on the North side whereof, is Penticost Lane, containing di-
uers slaughterhouses for the Butchers: and there is the Butchers
Hall
.
Then was there of olde time, a proper Parish Church of Saint
Nicholas
, whereof the said flesh market tooke the name, and was
called S. Nicholas Shambles. This church with the tenements,
and Ornaments, was by Henry the eight, giuen to the Mayor and
communaltie of the citie, towards the maintenance of the newe
Parish church, then to bee erected in the late dissolued church of the
Gray Fryers
: so was this church dissolued and pulled downe. In
place whereof, and of the church yard, many faire houses are now
builded in a court with a well, &c.
Then is Stinking lane, so called, or Chicke-lane at the
East end of the Gray Fryers church. And then the late dissolued
church of the Gray Fryers: The Originall whereof, was
this.
The

came to London, were lodged at the preaching Friers in Oldboorn,
for the space of fiftéene dayes: and then they hyred an house in Corn-
hill
, of Iohn Treuers, one of the Sheriffes of London. They builded
there little cells, wherein they inhabited, but shortly after, the de-
uotion of the citizens towards them, and the number of the Fry-
ers so increased, that they were by the citizens remooued to a place
in S. Nicholas Shambles: which Iohn Ewin Mearcer, appropria-
ted vnto the comunaltie, to the vse of these said Fryers, and him-
selfe became a lay-brother amongst them. About the yeare 1225.
William Ioyner builded their Quire, Henry Walles the body of the
church: Walter Poter Alderman the Chapter house: Gregory
Rokesly
, their Dorter: Bartholomewe of the castle made the re-
fectorie: Peter de Heliland made the infirmitorie: Beuis Bond king

Edward the 1. began the Quire of their new church, in the yeare
1306. to the building whereof, in her life time, she gaue 2000.
Markes, and one hundred marke by her Testament.
Iohn Britaine Earle of Richmond, builded the bodie of the
church, to the charges of thrée hundred pound, and gaue many rich
Iewels and Ornaments to be vsed in the same. Mary Countesse

councell had giuen prohibition, that none, Cnglishmen5 or other,
should make chaunge of plate or other Masse of siluer, but onely in
this Exchaunge at London, or at Canterbury. Andrew Buke-

then had to Farme the Exchaunge of England, and was Ma-
ior of London in the raigne of Henry the third. Iohn Somercote
had the keeping of the Kings Exchaunge ouer all England. In the

On the East side of this Lane, betwixt West cheape, and the
church of S. Augustine, Henry Walles Maior (by license of Ed. the

freeshippes by sea and by land, on tyde, and off tyde, and all the
rights that into them. Christendome by rad and more speake and

In the yeare 1087. this church of S. Paule was brent with
fire, and therwith the more part of the citie which fire began at the
entry of the West gate, and consumed to the East gate. Mauricius
then Bishop, began therefore the foundation of a new church of S.

was builded vpon Arches (or Uaultes) of stone, for defence of fire,
which was a manner of woorke before that time vnknowne to the
people of this Nation, and then brought in by the French: and the
stone was fetcht from Cane in Normandy.
This Mauricius deceased in the yeare 1107. Richard Beamor
succéeded him in the Bishoppricke, who did wonderfully increase
the said church, purchasing of his owne cost, the large stréetes and
Lanes about it, wherin were wont to dwel many laye people, which
ground he began to compasse about, with a strong wall of stone and
gates. King Henry the first gaue to the said Richard, so much of the
Mote (or Wall) of the castle, on the Thames side to the South, as
should be néedfull to make the said wal of the church, and so much as
should suffise to make a wall without the way on the North side, &c.

It should séeme that this Richard inclosed but two sides of the
saide church or Semitorie of Saint Paule, to wit, the South and
North sides: for King Edward the second, in the tenth of his raigne,
graunted that the saide church yarde should be inclosed with a wall
where it wanted, for the murthers and robberies that were there
committed. But the cittizens then claimed the East part of the
church yarde to bee the place of assembly to their folkemotes,

and
that the great stéeple there scituate was to that vse, their common
bell, which being there rung, all the inhabitants of the citie might
heare and come togither. They also claimed the West side, that
they might there assemble themselues togither, with the Lorde of
Baynardes castle
, for view of their Armour in defence of the citie.
This matter was in the Tower of London referred to Haruius
de Stanton
, and his fellow Iustices Itenerantes: but I finde not
the decision or iudgement of that controuersie.
True it is, that Edward the third, in the ſeuentéene of his raigne,
gaue commandement for the finishing of that wall, which was then
performed, and to this day it continueth. Although now on both the
sides (to wit, within and without) it be hidden with dwelling hou-
ses. Richard Beamer deceased in the yeare 1127. and his successors
in processe of time, performed the worke begunne.
The stéeple of this church was builded and finished in the yeare
1222. The crosse on the said stéeple fell downe, and a new was set
vp in the yeare 1314. The new worke of Powles (so called) at the
East ende aboue the Quire, was begun in the yeare 1251.

There was also one great Cloyster on the North side of this
church, inuironing a plot of ground, of old time called Pardō church

, whereof Thomas More (Deane of Pauls) was either the first
builder, or a most especiall benefactor, and was buried there.

of Death, leading all estates painted about the Cloyster: at the
speciall request and dispence of Iankin Carpenter, in the Raigne of
Henry the 6
. In this Cloyster were buried many persons, some of
worship, and others of honour: the monuments of whom, in num-
ber and curious workemanship, passed all other that were in that
church.
Ouer the East Quadrant of this Cloyster, was a faire Libra-
rie, builded at the costs and charges of Walter Sherington, Chance-
lor of the Duchie of Lancaster, in the raigne of Henry the 6. which
hath béene well furnished with faire written bookes in Uellum: but
fewe of them now do remaine there. In the middest of this pardon
church yard
, was also a faire Chapel, first foūded by Gilbert Becker,
Portgraue and principal magistrate of this citie, in the raign of king
Stephen
, who was there buried.
Thomas Moore Deane of Pauls before named, reedified
this Chappel, and founded thrée Chaplains there, in the raigne of
Henry the 5
.
In the yeare 1549. on the tenth of Aprill, the said Chappell
by commaundement of the Duke of Summerset, was begun to bee
pulled downe, with the whole Cloystrie, the daunce of Death, the
Tombes, and monuments: so that nothing thereof was left, but the
bare plot of ground, which is since conuerted into a garden, for the
Pety Canons. There was also a Chapel at the North dore of Pauls,
founded by the same Walter Sherington, by license of Henry the
sixt
, for two, thrée, or foure Chaplains, indowed with fortie pound by
the yeare. This Chapell also was pulled downe in the raigne of
Edward the ſixt
, and in place thereof, a faire house builded.
There was furthermore, a faire Chapel of the holy Ghost in Pauls
church
, on the North side: founded in the yeare, 1400. by Roger
Holmes
, Chauncelor and Prebendary of Pauls, for Adam Bery
Alderman, Iohn Wingham and others, for seuen Chaplains, and
called Holmes Colledge. Their common Hall was in Pauls church
yard
on the South side. This Colledge also was with others sup-
pressed

266
in the raigne of Edward the ſixt. Then vnder the Quire of
Paules
is a large chapel, first dedicated to the name of Iesu, founded
the 37. of Henry the ſixt, as appeareth by his patent thereof, dated
at Crodowne to this effect. Many liege men, and Christian people
hauing begun a fraternitie, and guild, to the honour of the most glo-
rious name of Iesu Christ our Sauiour, in a place called The special character yͤ (LATIN SMALL LETTER Y WITH LATIN SMALL LETTER E ABOVE) does not display on all browsers and has been replaced by its simplified form.ye crowdes

request, and we haue taken vpon vs the name and charge of the
foundation, to the laude of Almightie God, the Father, the Sonne
and the holy Ghost, and especially to the honour of Iesu, in whose
honour, the fraternitie was begun, &c.
The King ordained William Say then Deane of Pauls to bee
the Rector, and Richard Ford, (a remembrancer in the Exchequer)
and Henry Bennis (clarke of his priuie Seale) the Gardians of
these brothers and sisters: they and theyr successors to haue a com-
mon seale: license to purchase lands or tenements to the value of 40
pound by the yeare, &c.
This foundation was confirmed by Henry the seuenth, the
two and twentie of his reigne, to Doctor Collet, then Deane of
Powles, Rector there, &c. And by Henry the eight, the ſeuen
and twentieth of his raigne
, to Richard Pace, then Deane of
Pauls, &c.
At the West ende of this Iesus chapell, vnder the Quire
of Pauls
, also was a Parish church of Saint Fayth, commonly cal-
led Saint Faith vnder Pauls, which serued for the Stacioners and
others, dwelling in Pauls church yard, Pater Noster Rowe, and
the places neare adioyning. The said chapell of Iesus being sup-
pressed in the raigne of Edward the ſixt: the Parishioners of Saint
Fayths church
were remooued into the same Iesus chapell, as to a
place more sufficient for largenesse and lightsomenesse, then
their former church was, and so it still remaineth to that
vse.
Then was there on the North side of this church yarde, a
Charnell house for the boanes of the dead, and ouer it a chapell of
an olde foundation, such as followeth. In the yeare one thouſand

The common spéech then was, that he did set an hundred poūd

and belles of the King: and then causing the belles to be broken as

by learned Diuines euery Sunday in the forenoone. The very anti-

At the East end of this church, in place of the olde crosse, is now
a water conduit placed. W. Estfielde Mayor, the 9. of Henry the 6.
at the request of diuers common councels, granted it so to bee: wher-
vpon in the 19. of the ſame Henry, one thousand markes was gran-
ted by a common councell towards the workes of this conduit,
and the reparations of other, this is called the litle conduit in West

a small passage for people on foote, through the same church, and west
from the said church, some distance, is an other passage out of Pater

, and is called of such a signe, Panyar Ally, which com-
meth out into the North, ouer against S. Martins Lane. Next is
Iuie Lane, so called of Iuie growing on the walles of the Prebend
almes houses, but now the Lane is replenished on both the sides
with faire houses, and diuers offices be there kept, by registers,
namely for the prerogatiue court of the Archbishop of Canterburie,
the Probate of willes, and for the Lord Treasurers remembrance of
the Exchequer, &c.
This Lane runneth North to the West ende of S. Nicholas

to the Earles of Britaine, since that to the Louels, and was called

Henry the 6.
Then is Eldenese Lane, which stretcheth North to
the high stréete of Newgate Market, the same is now called War-
wiche Lane
, of an auncient house there builded by an Earle of War-
wicke
, and was since called Warwicke Inne. It is on record called
a Messuage in Eldenese Lane, in the parish of S. Sepulchre, the
28. of Henry the 6. Cicille the Duches to Warwicke, possessed it.
Now againe from the Conduit by Powles gate on the North side,
is a large stréete, running West to Newgate: the first part whereof,
from the Conduit to the Shambles, is (of selling bladders there) cal-
led Bladder stréete. Then behinde the Butchers shoppes be now di-
uers slaughter houses inward, and Tipling houses outward. This
is called Mountgodard Stréete, by all likelihood of the Tipling hou-
ses there, and the Goddards or Pots, mounting from the tap to the
table, from the table to the mouth, and sometimes ouer the head. Al-
so this stréete goeth vp to the North end of Iuie Lane. Before this
Mountgodard stréete, stall boords were set vp by the Butchers, to
shewe and to sell their flesh meate vpon, ouer the which stalboords,
they first builded sheads to kéepe off the weather: but since that, in-
croching by litle and litle, they haue made these stall boords & sheads,
faire houses, méete for the principall Shambles. Next is Newgate
Market
, first of corne and meale, and then of other victualls, which
stretcheth almost to Eldenese Lane. A faire, new, and strong frame
of Timber couered with leade was therefore set vppe at the char-
ges to the Citie, neare to the West corner of S. Nicholas shambles,
for the meale to be weyed, in the 1. of Ed. the 6. Sir Iohn Gresham
being then Maior. On this side the North corner of Eldenese Lane,
was sometime a propper parish Church of S. Ewine, (as is before
said) was giuen by Henry the 8. towards the erecting of Christes
Church
: it was taken downe, and in place thereof, a faire strong
frame of timber was erected, wherein dwell men of diuers Trades.
And from this frame to Newgate, is all of this Warde, and so an
ende thereof. It hath an Alderman, his Deputie, Common Coun-
cell 12. Constables 17. Scauingers 18. Wardmote Inquest, 18.
and a Bedle. And is taxed to the fiftéene in London, at 54. pound,
and in the Exchequer at 53. pound, 6. shillings 8. pence.
