Great Trinity Lane
   East out of Queen Victoria Street, at No. 71, to Garlick Hill (P.O. Directory). In Vintry, Cordwainer, Bread Street and Queenhithe Wards.
   First mention: Strype, ed. 1720, and Lockie, 1810.
   Former names : "Holy Trinity Street," 1349 (Ct. H.W. I. 554). "Trinity Lane" (Leake, 1666-Horwood, 1799). "Knightriders Street" (q.v.) (Stow, 354).
   Messuages in Breadstreete and Knyhtryderstreete commonly called "Trinitie Lane," in the parish of St. Mildred Breadstreete, 1594-5 (Ct. H.W. II. 722).
   It evidently at that time formed part of and was included in Knightrider street, as indicated by Stow.
