   First mention: L.C.C. list, 1901.
   The site was formerly occupied by "Green's" or "Green Court" (Strype, ed. 1720-O.S. 1848-51.
   "Glean Alley" (O. and M. 1677).
   This last name is derived from a messuage called "the Glayne" in Colmanstrete in parish of St. Stephen, 30 H. VIII. 1538 (Lond. I. p.m. I. 64), and the name "Green Court" is probably merely a corruption of this name.
