George Alley, Fleet Market
   West from Fleet Market to Shoe Lane, in Farringdon Ward Without (Leake, 1666-Lockie, 1816).
   In 1708 it had three passages into Rose and Crown Court (Hatton).
   Removed for the erection of Farringdon Market, c. 1826. Site now covered by Farringdon Avenue.
   In 1432 a tenement called the Tabard is described as lying between "the Castel" east and "the George" at Scholane end (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 265).
   Perhaps the George here mentioned gave name to this alley.
