Fox and Knot Court
   West out of Cow Lane and north through Fox and Knot Inn to Chick Lane, in Farringdon Ward Without (Horwood, 1799-Elmes, 1831).
   Called "Foxes Court" in O. and M. 1677-Strype, 1755.
   Site now covered by Smithfield Market and the railway lines.
   The site is commemorated in the Fox and Knot Street Schools in Charterhouse Street.
   Perhaps name derived from union of two signs, the knot or top-knot being possibly a reference to the head-dress worn by ladies in the 18th century.
