Basing Lane
   West out of Bow Lane to Bread Street, in Cordwainer and Bread Street Wards (O.S.1848-51).
   Earliest mention: 1275 (Ct. H.W. I. 20).
   Other forms : "Basingelane," 1279-80 (ib. 46). "Basingeslane," 1324 (ib. 309). "Basiggeslane," 35 Ed. I. (Cal. L. Bk. C. p. 204). "Bassingeslane," 3 Ed. II. (ib. D. p. 231). "Basingestrete," 1303 (Cal. L. Bk. C. p.191). "Basynglane," 1336 (Ct. H.W. I. 412). "Bassynglane," 1361 (Cal. Close R. Ed. III. 1360-4, p.278).
   Removed for the western extension and widening of Cannon Street, 1854, into which it is now absorbed.
   Maitland says Basinglane or Bakeing Lane from having the King's Bakehouse or some other great bakehouse there formerly (ed. 1775, II. 824).
   There does not appear to be any early record of the name "Bakeing," and the more probable derivation would seem to be from the family of the "Basinges" who held property in the lane in 1275 (Ct. H.W. I. 20).
