Austin Friars Passage
   North out of Austin Friars at No.12 (P.O. Directory) to Great Winchester Street. In Broad Street Ward.
   First mention: Elmes, 1831.
   Former name : " Bell Alley " (P.C. 1732-Boyle, 1799).
   There was a messuage called " le Bell " in parish of St. Peter Paupertatis, 36 H. VIII. 1545 (L. and P. H. VIII. XX. Pt. I. p. 307), from which this alley probably derived its name.
   The present name commemorates the Priory of the Augustine Friars, on a portion of the site of which this passage stands.
