Hooper's Court
   North out of Upper East Smithfield at No. 28 (Horwood, 1799-Elmes, 1831).
   Former names : "Coopers Court" (Strype, ed. 1720-Boyle, 1799). "Cowpers Court," "Coopers Rents" (P.C. 1732).
   "Loat's Buildings" occupied part of the site in O.S. ed. 1848-51.
   The later name, "Hooper's Court," is probably due to an error, "C" being mistaken for "H".
