Culver Alley
   North out of Fenchurch Street, on the west side of Ironmongers Hall (S. 141). Partly stopped up and used as a tennis court in Stow's time (ib. and 201).
   There is a Culver Lane shown in O. and M. 1677, but this seems to lie a little further west.
   "Culver or Fishmongers Alley" (Maitland, 1775, II. p. 777). "Culver Court" in Boyle, 1799, and "Culver Court, Cullum Street."
   The name "Col(u)vere" is mentioned in the description of the bounds of the soke of the Knightenguild in L. Bk. C. p. 224.
   Perhaps this alley was called after some one bearing the same name.
   See Fishmonger Alley.
