   It was longer in the 18th century than it is at present, as the northern portion of the street is now occupied by the Fenchurch Street Station of the London and Blackwall Railway. This northern portion was known as "New Court" between 1746-1831.
   For the meaning of the word "ordinary" in this connection, See Fox Ordinary Court.
