Dunghill Stairs
   A wharf in the parish of St. Mary (sic) Vintry given 1437 by Robert de Chichele to the rector of this church (L. and M. Arch. Soc. Trans. III. 399).
   In the Ct. of Hust. Wills II, 491, the tenement situate "super postes super Wharvum" is described as in the parishes of St. Martin in the Vintry and St. James Garlickhithe, between Stodyeslane and Cressingham lane.
   This would be on the site of the Three Cranes' Wharf, as shown in Rocque.
   There are several references to Dunghill Stairs in the registers of St. James, Garlickhithe, in 1647-9, from which it appears that the property belonged to the parish at this time (Trans. L. and M. Arch. Soc. N.S. I. (2), pp. 229-30).
