Beaurepair
   A tenement so named in the parish of All Hallows at the Hay described as a place "where the hay is sold" and in a ruinous condition.
   Earliest mention: "Beurepeyr," temp. John (Cal. I. p.m. H. III. I. p. 388).
   In 1298 the tenement belonged to Hamo Box (Ct. H.W. I. 135), and in 1329 and 1336 it was in the hands of the Rokesley family (ib. 283, 416).
   In 1402 (the latest mention of it) a portion at any rate belonged to Agnes Preston (ib. II. 353).
   It seems probable that it was situated at the Haywharf in Dowgate Ward (q.v.).
