Fye Foot Lane
   North out of Upper Thames Street at No. 208 (P.O. Directory). Leading to Lambeth Hill. In Queenhithe Ward.
   Earliest mention: "Fynamoureslane," 1316 (Ct. H.W. I. 263).
   Other names : "Finimore lane" or "fiue foote lane" (S. 354). "Fyve foote lane," 7 Jas. I. (Anc. Deeds, A. 5778). "Five Foot lane" (O. and M. 1677-O.S. 1848-50). "Fyford lane" (Rev. of L. 1728, and W. Stow, 1722). "Five foot court" (P.C. 1732).
   Stow says it was called Five foot lane as being five foote in breadth at the west end. But he makes no suggestion as to the origin of the earlier name.
   In former times it was more extensive than at present, and extended north to Old Fish Street. This northern portion was demolished for the formation of Queen Victoria Street.
