Lombard Court


Lombard Court
   East out of Clement's Lane, at No. 28, to 32 Gracechurch Street (P.O. Directory). In Langbourn Ward and Bridge Ward Within.
   First mention: O.S. 1875.
   Former name : "Nag's, Naggs Head Court" (O. and M. 1677-O.S. 1848-51).
   The site seems to have been occupied in the 16th century by a large house known as the "Lumberd's house" or "Lumberds place," the property of Sir Wm. Chester, Lord Mayor in 1560 (H. Co. Mag. No. 27, p. 198).
   Perhaps this was a place of meeting or of residence for the Lombard merchants living in London, similar to the one in Botolph Lane.
   See Lombard's Place.
   The Court seems to have been named after this house.
   The northern portion of Nag's Head Court, leading in the 18th century into Three Kings Court, is now occupied by "Plough Court," Lombard Street.
