Northumberland House

Northumberland House
   On the west side of St. Martin's Lane (now St. Martin le Grand), in the parish of SS. Anne and Agnes, in Aldersgate Ward.
   It is described in Cal. L. Bk. K. p.203 as a messuage, shop and garden in parish of St. Agnes without Aldresgate, belonging to the Earl of Northumberland granted to Q. Johanna by Henry IV. by name of the Hostel of the Earl of Northumberland, 6 H. IV. 1405.
   Stow says it was called the Queen's Wardrope, but now a printing house. "le Quene Warderobe," 1452 (Cal. P.R. H. VI. 1446-52, p.566) (S. 311)
   The Percies seem to have recovered possession of the house, for on the attainder of the third Earl, it was granted to George, duke of Clarence (Ch. I. p.m. Ed. IV. I. 48, 199).
   The site is now covered by the buildings of the General Post Office.
