Bucklersbury
   South-east out of Cheapside, at No. 80, to Walbrook (P.O. Directory). In Walbrook and Cheap Wards.
   Earliest mention: "Bokerelesbury," 1275 (Ct. H.W. I. 26).
   Other names and forms : "Bokerelesberi," 6 Ed. I. (ib. 29). "Bokerellesbiry," 1307 (Cal. L. Bk. B. p. 197). "Bokerellesbury," 1336 (Ct. H.W. I. 415). "Bokelersbury," 23 Ed. III. (Anc. Deeds, C. 905). "Bokerelesbury Street," 24 Ed. III. 1350 (Cal. Close R. Ed. III. 1349-54, p. 277). "Bukleresbury," 41 Ed. III. 1367 (Cal. L. Bk. G. p. 220). "Bokeleresbury," 1414 (Ct. H.W. II. 402). "Boclersbury," 1499 (ib. 599). "Buklersbury," 1516 (ib. 622). "Bucklersbury," 1529 (L. and P. H. VIII. IV. Pt. 3, p. 2547).
   In the earlier references above cited, it is the estate and tenement of Bucklersbury that are referred to and not the street. The earliest mention of the street appears to be about the 23 or 24 Ed. III., so that it may have been formed early in the 14th century.
   Stow is under a misapprehension in stating that the estate or manor (as he calls it) and tenements belonged to one Buckle, as this is not the original form of the name. It is much more likely that the owners of the property were the well-known family of Bokerel or Bukerel, who took an active interest in municipal affairs, throughout the 13th century.
   In 41 Ed. III. it was ordained that all exchanges of gold and silver were to be located in Bucklersbury, 31 Ed. III. 1367 (Cal. L. Bk. G. p. 220).
   In later times the street was occupied by the Pepperers and Grocers (S. 82 and 262), and afterwards by Drugsters and Furriers (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 50).
