Red Gate Court
   East out of the Minories and apparently communicating with Worley Court and Crown and Shears Court (P.C. 1732-O.S. 5 ft. 1875). In Portsoken Ward.
   Former name : " Blue Anchor Alley" (O. and M. 1677).
   The name seems to be derived from a messuage which occupied the site in early days called Redgate, or Ridegate, or Rigate, which formerly belonged to the Monastery of Coggeshall, and was held of the Crown in chief by knight service (L. and P. H. VIII. 1544, Vol. XIX. Pt. I, p.177, and Lond. Inq. p.m. Vol.III. p.167, 34 Eliz.).
   The site seems now to be occupied by railway depots.
