(St.) Augustine's Gate
   Leading out of St. Paul's Churchyard at the south-east corner to Watling Street (Leake, 1666).
   First mention: " Gate of St. Augustine," 1282 (Cal. P.R. Ed. I. 1281-2, p. 24). " St. Augustine's Gate," 1305 (Cal. L. Bk. C. p. 198). " St. Paul's Gate," 1369 (Ct. H.W. II. 131). " Seint Austyn's Gate," 16 Ed. IV. (Anc. Deeds, A. 10953). " Paule's Gate," 1544 (H. MSS. Com. 9th Rep. 3b). " Poule's Gate," 1500-21 (Arnold's Chr. p. 247).
   Burnt down in the Fire and not rebuilt, although for many years after the entrance into the churchyard at this point was still known by this name (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 197).
   Named after the church of St. Augustine, Watling Street (q.v.).
   The shortened form " Austin " which appears as early as Piers Plowman indicates that the name Augustine was pronounced with the accent on the first syllable, and not as now, on the second.
