Jacob and his Twelve Sons Inn
   East out of Red Cross Street, in Cripplegate Ward Without (O. and M. 1677).
   The site is now occupied by the Midland Ry. goods office.
   This sign must have been a variant of the more familiar sign of "Jacob's Well" and may have been suggested by the "Jacob's Well" in Golden Lane, Cripplegate.
