Cloister Court, Blackfriars
   West out of Curriers' Row, Ireland Yard, Blackriars, in Farringdon Ward Within.
   First mention: "Cloyster Court" (O. and M. 1677).
   Other names : "Gloucester Court" (Strype, ed. 1755-Elmes, 1831).
   This is merely a corruption of the original name, and is not given in the maps.
   The court is described under this name by Malcolm in his "Londinium Redivivum," as a small square surrounded by wretched passages, formed by sheds, wooden houses and walls, containing a fragment or two of the old monastery of the Blackfriars. Near it is a small burial ground, with a pointed arch in one of the walls. Eight steps on the north side led to Joye's free school (II. p. 367).
   So named from the cloisters of the Blackfriars.
