Grant by Hugh de Nevill to Edithe Lodham of "Messagium meum in 'Bruestrete' juxta terra qua Galfridus piscator de me, ten scilicet quicquid in illo mesagio habui in profunditate et latitudine et rebus cunctis" (Harl. Ch. 54, B. 13), N.d.
   Endorsed "paroch sancti Magni Lon."
   The form "Bruestrete" may well have been a contraction of "Brugestrete," a common form for "Bridge Street" (q.v.) in early times.
   The endorsement is almost certainly later than the deed, so that too much importance must not be attached to it.
