Acorn Street

   West out of Bishopsgate at No.128 (P.O. Directory). In Bishopsgate Ward Without.
   First mention: (Lockie, 1816).
   Former names: "Acorn Alley" (O. and M. 1677-Lockie, 1810). "Acorn Court" (Strype, 1720, I. ii. 108).
   It seems to have been rebuilt since 1799 and widened. Elmes in 1831 also mentions "Acorn Court" at No.125, and so does Lond. Guide, 1758.
   The street is much shorter now than as it is shown in O.S. 1880, in consequence of the Metropolitan Railway extensions, and there are only a few houses in it.
   Dodsley says it was named after the" Acorn," which stood on the site of the present King's Arms Tavern, No.128, Bishopsgate, and see N. and Q. II S. III. p.3.
