Gerard's Hall Inn


Gerard's Hall Inn
   On the south side of Basing Lane, adjoining St. Mildred, Bread Street, in Bread Street Ward (Elmes, 1831).
   First mention: "Gerrardes hall" (S.350).
   Former names : New hall of John de Gisorcis in parish of S. Mildred de Bredstrete, 1296 (Ct. H.W. I. 128). His former house was in the Vintry, 26 H. III. (Cal. Ch. R. I. 269). "Gyors halle," 1350-1 (Ct. H.W. I. 644). "Gysorshalle," "Gysoreshall," 9 Rich. II. (Anc. Deeds, C. 257 and 2802). "Gisoreshalle," 1430 (Ct. H.W. II. 453). "Gysors Hall," called Gerrards hall by corruption (S. 351).
   In Stow's time a common ostrey (S. 350). Fables as to a Giant who dwelt there (ib.).
   In a London deed of 1672, a messuage new built in the parish of St. Mildred's Bread Street, is described as "Garretts hall" (L.C.C. Deeds, Harben Bequest, 1600-1700, No. 79). Could this be an error for Gerard's Hall ?
   Removed for the western extension of Cannon Street, 1853-4.
   It had a fine crypt with pointed vault, columns and capitals, dating about 1290.
   Named originally after the owner.
