(Hostel of Abbot of) Ramsey
   " In Beech Lane of old times a great house, pertayning to the Abbot of Ramsey for his lodging, when he repayred to the Cittie. It is now called Drewry House of sir Drewe Drewne, a worshipfull owner thereof " (S. 304). In Cripple-gate Ward Without.
   First mention: 1349 (Ct. H.W. I. 598).
   The house of the Abbot of Ramsey in London is mentioned in 1114-30 in the Cartulary of Ramsey Abbey, pp.139 and 140, but it is not clear from these entries whether that house occupied the same position as the one referred to by Stow. It seems possible it may have been somewhere near the Walbrook at that time.
   Granted to John Gates 1545 (L. and P. H. VIII. XIX. (1), p.623).
