White Hart Street
   East out of Warwick Lane, at No.25, to Paternoster Square (P.O. Directory). In Castle Baynard Ward.
   First mention: Hatton, 1708.
   Former name: "White Hart Court" in 1664 (Lond. Topog. Rec. II. 105).
   Strype says in his time it was inhabited by Butchers and Fishmongers (ed. 1720, I. iii.195). Probably because of its proximity to Newgate Market.
   Perhaps named after the " White Harte " (q.v.) mentioned 1568.
