The Cheker
   A messuage so called belonging to the Salters in parish of All Saints in Bredstrete, I. Ed. VI. (Lond. I. p.m. I. 99).
   No further reference.
   It is difficult to account for the frequent use of this name, which would seem to be derived from the word "Exchequer," unless the chequered board may have been used as a sign by money changers in various parts of the City.
