Horsey Alley
   In Coleman Street in parish of St. Stephen.
   It seems to have been on the east side of Coleman Street, as some gardens in that street are described as abutting north on a tenement in Swan Alley and south on Horsey Alley, 36 Eliz. 1594 (Lond. I. p.m. III. 187).
   Probably the same as Horse Alley (q.v.).
   Perhaps Horse Alley and Horsey Alley may be identified with White's Alley (q.v.), as in 1543 mention is made of a messuage of William White near Horse Alley in St. Stephen's parish (L. and P. H. VIII. XVIII. Pt. 1, 201), and it may easily have been renamed after him. If not identical with it, it was near to White's alley.
