- Jelly Alley
- In parish of St. Bartholomew near the Exchange (Strype, ed. 1720, I. ii. 148).Near Drapers' Hall in 1585 (Churchwardens' Accounts, etc., of St. Michael Cornhill, Overall, p. 221). In Broad Street Ward.The tenement in Jelly Alley, left by William Bailey for the poor of the parish of St. Michael Cornhill, is described as situate at the back of the Auction Mart in Bartholomew Lane, which is now occupied by the Alliance Assurance Company's offices (End. Ch. St. Michael, 1903, p. 3). Jelly Alley would therefore appear to be situated on the south side of Throgmorton Street, some distance west of but opposite to Drapers' Hall.Called "Pottes alley" or "Gelley alley" in 1593 (Vestry Minute Books of St. Bartholomew the Little, ed. by E. Freshfield, p. 29).It is interesting to note in the accounts of the churchwardens for the parish, receipts by them of rents from the inhabitants of Dibbles Alley and Jelly Alley for the New River water, 1658 and other years (p. 163).
