Brick Court
   West out of Middle Temple Lane, within the Temple precincts (P.O. Directory).
   First mention: 1674 (L. and P. Chas. II. 1673-5, p.331).
   So called as being one of the earliest brick buildings erected in the Temple, 11 Eliz.
   Stow calls it "Herber lane" or "brikels lane," so called of John Brikels, sometime owner thereof (S. 241).
   John Brickell or Brykles, left houses in Harbour Lane to the parish of All Saints in Heywharf, with a yard adjoining the tavern called the Emperor's Head, 144O. Also other houses which in 1821 were identified as part of a sugar-house, a dwelling house and two warehouses on the east side of Brickhill lane, otherwise Brykle1s lane, in the parish of St. Martin Vintry (End. Ch. Rep. All Hallows the Great, 1903, p. 1, and Proc. in Chanc. I. 5.).
   But it is not certain from this Report that Brickhill Lane and Harbour Lane are identical.
   Strype says the Royal Fishery Company of England had their house in Brickhill lane (ed. 1720, I. iii. 13).
