   First mention: A tablet affixed to the first house on the west side says the Inn was founded by John Thavie, temp. Ed. III., and was judged to be extra-parochial. Said to have been demised by Isabella, widow of Robert Clifford, to "apprenticii de Banco," 18 Ed. III.

   The will says "the tenement in which he (John) lived and three shops" (End. Ch Rep. 1898, p.4).
   Formerly an Inn of Chancery, appertaining to Lincoln's Inn.
   Purchased by the Society of Lincoln's Inn, 1550, for the use of students of the law.
