Abbot's Lodging
   A messuage called "le Abbottes Lodgyng" in parish of St. Sepulchre, between St. Sepulchre's Churchyard south, and Cockes Lane north, tenement of late prior of St. Bartholomew's and the vicar of St Sepulchre's east, and the garden pertaining to the "Sarsons Head" west (36 H. VIII. 1545. L. and P. H. VIII. XX. (1) p. 124).
   The messuage must have stood on the west side of Giltspur Street, north of St. Sepulchre's Church and Churchyard in Farringdon Ward Without, and east of the Saracen's Head, so that the site is easy of identification, but it does not appear what Abbot had his lodging here.
