Alan Underwode, cordwainer, had shops in the parish of St. Stephen de Colmanstrete near "Sakfrerelane" in 1310 (Ct. H.W. I. 214).
   This was probably the Old Jewry and was called "Sakfrerelane" after the Fratres de Penitentia or Friars of the Sac, who had their house at the north end of Old Jewry (q.v.).
