Church Lane

Church Lane
   1) South out of Upper Thames Street to the river at Three Cranes Wharf. In Vintry Ward, opposite the church of St. Martin Vintry (S. p. 241-Boyle, 1799).
   Former name : "Vanners lane" (S. 241).
   Stow says it was so named of one Vannar, the owner, now called "church lane" "of the comming up from the wharfe to S. Martin's church" (S. 241).
   Henricus Vannere had land near Ludgate (Lib. Cust. II. p. 455) and a wharf in the parish of St. Mary Somerset (Cal. L. Bk. K. p. 95), also a tenement in the street of la Riole, 1354 (Ct. H.W. I. 678).
   Since the widening of Queen Street the lane has been absorbed into the footway of that street.
