Benbridges Inn
   Hostel of Ralph Holand called "Penbrigges Inne," at the corner of Lymestrete in parish of St. Andrew near Cornhull, devised to the Master and Wardens of Fraternity of Tailors and Armourers of Linen Armour, 1454 (Ct. H.W. II. 526).
   Stow calls it Benbridges Inn, and says it was at the north-west corner of Lime Street (S. 153).
   Ricardus de Pembrugge chevalier and Henricus his son held a tenement in London in the parish of St. Andrew, Cornhill, in Warda de Lymstret in 49 Ed. III (Cal. Ch. I. p.m. II. 348). Probably this is the origin of the name.
   See East India House.
