Bacon House
   In Noble Street on the boundary of Aldersgate Ward Within. Formerly called Shelly House, as of old belonging to the Shelleyes, now called Bacon House, as being new built by Sir Nicholas Bacon (S. 305-6).
   The site is given on the O.S. map, 1875, west of St. Mary Staining Church, at the north-west corner of Oat Lane, and this is confirmed by the following record :
   The rents and houses of Thos. Shelly between the church of St. Mary at the end of Stanynglane end and Adlyngstrete were forfeited 1400 (Cal. P.R. H. IV. 1399-1401, p. 193).
   The tenement was called " Shelles " in 1474 and 1482 (Cal. I. p.m. iv. 408).
   Purchased by the Scriveners' Company in 1628 and made use of as their Hall. Prior to 1720, they sold the house to the Coachmakers' Company, except the front in Noble Street, which they retained (Gent. Mag. Lib. XV. 329-330).
