- All Hallows Lane
- 1) Tenements in All Hallows Lane in parish of All Hallows Barking given to the poor of that parish (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 36).Not further identified. Probably adjoined the church.2) South out of Upper Thames Street at No. 89 (P.O. Directory.) In Dowgate Ward.Earliest mention in records : " Alhalloes Lane," 43 Eliz. (1601) (Lond. I. p.m. III. p. 303).In this inquisition the lane is called " Alhalloes Lane, alias Hay Wharfe lane," but in O. and M. 1677, Heywharfe Lane is clearly shown by name east of All Hallows Lane, answering to Stow's description of Haywharfe Lane as at the east end of All Hallows the Great.Stow calls the lane " Church Lane," and does not mention the name All Hallows Lane, so that this designation, as applied to the present street, appears to have come into use only about the 17th century (S. ed. 1598, 186).Called " Great Allhallows Lane " in 1659 (End. Ch. Report, 1903, St. Martin Ludgate).The western side was demolished about 1860-5 for the erection of Cannon Street Station.Named after the church of All Hallows the Great.Perhaps this lane is to be identified with the Ropary (q.v.).
