   1) South out of Throgmorton Street. In Coleman Street Ward (Strype, ed. 1720, I. ii. 131).
   Removed for the erection of the Bank of England, completed 1734.
   Spelt "Katherine Court" in Strype.
   2) East out of Seething Lane, at No. 34 (P.O. Directory). In Tower Ward.
   First mention: "Katherine Court" (P.C. 1732).
   Erected 1725.
   Former name : "Green Arbor Court" (O. and M. 1677-Strye, 1720).
   Seems to have been rebuilt about 1732 (Maskell, All Hallows Barking, p. 184, quoting Seymour's Survey).
   Derivation of name : It is supposed to occupy the site of an ancient palace of Q. Katherine of Valois, wife of Henry V. (ib.). No authority given for the statement.
   Dr. Norman, when showing some views of the Court at a meeting of the Committee for the Survey of the Memorials of Greater London, 4th Dec., 1913, said the Court was being demolished to make way for offices for the Port of London authority, which are now in course of erection. He said the Court was named after Catherine I. of Russia, d. 1727, and that it occupied part of the site of Crutched Friars monastery.
