Ave Maria Lane
   North out of Ludgate Hill at 16 and 18 to Paternoster Row and Amen Corner (P.O. Directory).
   In Castle Baynard Ward and Farringdon Ward Within.
   First mention: " Ave Mary Lane " (S. 340-1).
   First called : " Ave Maria Lane," 1641 (L. and P. Charles I. xviii. 193). " Ave-maria aly," 1506, in " Cocke Lorelles Bote," printed by Wynkyn de Worde.
   So called of text writers and bead makers dwelling there (S. 340).
   But See suggested derivation under Amen Court.
   The earliest mention of this lane is of comparatively late date, and it seems probable that in earlier times it may have formed part of Eldeneslane, Old Dean's Lane (now Warwick Lane) and may have been known by one of these names (q.v.).
