Carey Lane
   West out of Gutter Lane to 12 Foster Lane (P.O. Directory). In Aldersgate Ward and Farringdon Ward Within.
   First mention: O. and M. 1677.
   Other forms and names : "Cary Lane" (Horwood, 1799). "Carie lane" (Leake, 1666). "Kery Lane" (S. pp. 305 and 316), 1603. "Kerry Lane" (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 196). "Kryunelane," H. III. (Anc. Deeds, A. 7843). "Kyronlane," 1306 (Ct. H.W. I. 182). "Kyrounlane," 1361 (ib. II. 52).
   Stow says so called of one Kery, but this derivation completely ignores the earlier forms of the name, "Kyrune," "Kyron." It may be derived from some one of the name of "Kerion," or "Kirone," "Kyrone," as in the case of "Kyrune lane" in Vintry Ward.
