   First mention: Common Hall of the men of the Mistery of Girdlers in the Ward of Bassyngeshawe, 17 H. VI. 1438-9 (Cal. L. Bk. K. p. 220).

   The site on which the Hall was erected seems to have been in or near "Moundevyle" or Middleton Alley, as a parcel of land in that alley was given to the Girdlers of London by Robert Belgrave, girdler, by his will 1520-1 (Ct. H.W. II. 628).
