Staining Lane
   North out of Gresham Street, at No.29, to Oat Lane, in Aldersgate Ward and Cripplegate Ward (P.O. Directory).
   Earliest mention: " Staninge-lane," temp. Rich. I. (Anc. Deeds, A. 2124).
   Other forms " Stanigelane," 37 H. III. 1253 (Cal. P.R. H. III. 1247-58, p. 181). "Stannyngelane," 1272-3 (Ct. H.W. I. 13). " Staniges lane," 1278 (Cal. L. Bk. B. 274). "Steyning Court" (W. Stow, 1722).
   Stow suggests the derivation from "Painter stainers dwelling there," but this does not seem probable.
   Maitland in "Domesday Book and beyond," p. 181, suggests that it was so called as having once contained the haws of the men of Staines, thus identifying it with
   "Staeningehaga" "widinne Lundne" granted by Edward the king to St. Peter's Westminster (Kemble, 855).
   It is most probable that the lane was actually named after the church of St. Mary Staining (q.v.).
