Bearbinder Lane
   Extended from the Stocks Market, the present Mansion House and Walbrook east to St. Swithin's Lane and Lombard Street (S. 204 and 228) and Leake, 1666. In Langbourn and Walbrook Wards.
   Later it extended only from the Mansion House to St. Swithin's Lane, wholly in Walbrook Ward (Hatton, 1708-Elmes, 1831).
   Earliest mention found in records : "Berebyndereslane," 1341 (Ct. H.W. I. 455).
   Other forms of name : "Berbynderslane," 1412 (Cal. L. Bk. I. p. 110). "Bearebinder lane" (S. 228). "Beerbinder Lane" (O. and M. 1677). "Bearbinder Lane" (Strype, ed. 1720).
   Mentioned in 1358 as in the parish of St. Mary Bothaw, but this can hardly be the same lane, as that parish lies too far south.
   Now called "George Street" (q.v.).
