   Spelt "Faulcon Court " in Rocque, 1746, and Strype, ed. 1720 I. iii. 277.
   It seems to have had a passage into the Temple Churchyard, for in 1611 it was resolved that the passage should be stopped and adjacent buildings removed (Middle Temple Records, p. 38).
   Named after the Falcon, which, with six other houses adjoining, was left by John Fisher in 1547 to the Cordwainers' Company (Noble, 117).
   2) West out of Shoe Lane at No. 84, in Farringdon Ward Without (O. and M. 1677-Elmes, 1831).

   The site has been rebuilt.
   There was an inn called "The Faulcon" temp. H. VII. in the possession of Wynkyn de Worde in St. Bride's parish. It may well have been situated in this court and given name to it (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 265).
