Hanover Court
   1) East out of Milton Street, at No. 74, to Moor Lane (P.O. Directory). In Cripplegate Ward Without.
   First mention: W. Stow, 1722.
   2) South-west out of Houndsditch, at No. 3. In Portsoken Ward (P.O. Directory).
   Former names : "Carpenter's Yard" (L. and P. Chas. II. Dom. S. 1666-7, p. 426-P.C. 1732). "Seven Star Alley" (Strype, ed. 1720, I. ii. 27). "Hannover Court" (Rocque, 1746).
   It seems to have been called "Hanover Court" since 1732, in Parish Clerk's Survey.
   Strype describes the houses as having gardens to them, and says there was a Calendar in the alley, shut off from the rest of the houses by great gates.
   Perhaps so named in honour of the reigning sovereigns, Electors of Hanover.
