Bricklington Court
   East out of Coleman Street near the middle, in Coleman Street Ward (Boyle, 1799).
   Other forms of name : "Bricklingtons Court," (Leake, 1666). "Bricklington Court" (Hatton, 1708). "Brickenton Court" (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 64). "Brickinton Court" (Rocque, 1746).
   The earliest form, viz. that given in Leake's map, 1666, seems to suggest that it may have been named after the owner of the property.
   The site seems to be occupied by Coleman Street Buildings (q.v.).
