- Bury Street, Bevis Marks
- South out of Bevis Marks at No. 10. In Aldgate Ward (P.O. Directory).Earliest mention: Messuage called the Taverne of the "Kyngeshedd" lying in a street called "Burye street," London, belonging to Sir Thomas Englefield, 24 H. VII. (Lond. I. p.m. 30 H. VIII. No. 71, L. and M. Arch. Soc. New Series I. App. p. 50).It seems probable that this is a reference to Bury Street, Bevis Marks, although this street is not supposed to have been formed until after the suppression of the monasteries by H. VIII., and is not mentioned by Stow. But there is a street similarly situated shown in Agas, (G) map, and it may have been only rebuilt when Heneage Street and other streets in the neighbourhood were formed.Other forms of name : "Berry Street" (O. and M. 1677). "Stable Yard" (Rocque, 1746), occupies part of the southern portion of the street.Named after the Abbot of Bury, to whom Bevis Marks belonged.
