   "Needlers. lane " was the name given to the western portion of the street, west of Size Lane, before the Fire.
   The eastern portion was called " Peneritch street," and earlier " Goldhoper Lane."
   Named Pancras Lane or St. Pancras Lane to commemorate the church of St. Pancras, after the Fire.
   Stow spells the name " Peneritch" Street, but it seems more likely that it would have been " Pencritch," a corruption of " Pancras."
