Leather Lane
   North out of Holborn at No.128 (P.O. Directory). The extreme south-western corner only is in Farringdon Ward Without, the street lying in the borough of Holborn.
   First mention: "Lither lane" (S. 374).
   Earlier and later forms, etc.: "Louerone lane," 1306 (Ct. H.W. I. 181). "Lyuerounelane," 1331 (ib. 367). "Liveronelane," 4 Ed. III. (Hust. Roll, 58, No. 36). "Lenur Lane," 1353 (Ct. H.W. I. 671). "Leveroune Lane," 27 Ed. III. (Hust. Roll 81, No. 100). "Lyver lane," 10 H. IV. (Hust. Roll 136, No. 80). "Lyyer lane," 23 H. VIII. (Cal. L. and M. Ft. of Fines, II. 38). "lither lane alias 'liver lane,' " 1604 (L.C.C. Deeds, Harben Bequest, 1600-1700, No. 196).
   The earliest form as shown above is "Loueronelane," and perhaps it may be derived from one of the personal names,"Leofrun" or "Leueron." The present form is obviously very corrupt.
