Dyers' Hall Wharf

Dyers' Hall Wharf
   South out of Upper Thames Street at No. 95, between George Alley east and Angel passage west (P.O. Directory). In Dowgate Ward.
   First mention: Lockie, 1810.
   Former name : "Dyers' Hall" (Horwood, 1799), with the wharf at the south end.
   The hall of the Dyers' Company stood here prior to the Fire 1666, and being rebuilt on this site, was again destroyed by fire in 1681 and not rebuilt. This part of the estate was conveyed to the Company by Sir Robert Tyrwhitt, 1545, and comprised the great messe called the 3 Stars, etc., charged with the erection and maintenance of seven alms-houses (L. and M. Arch. Soc. Trans. V. 462).
   Perhaps to be identified with "Bretask Lane" (q.v.), to which the Dyers' Company laid claim at one time.
