Carey Street
   West out of Chancery Lane, at No. 95, to Portugal Street. In the borough of Holborn, and the City of Westminster-outside the City boundary (P.O. Directory). At the back of the Royal Courts of Justice.
   First mention: Hatton, 1708.
   It is unnamed in O. and M. 1677, and seems to form part of
   Lincoln's Inn Fields, although it appears to have been called "Ballardes Lane" in temp. H. VIII. (q.v.).
   Nicholas Carey lived there temp. Chas. I. and the lane is said to have been named after him.
