Merchant Taylors' Hall


Merchant Taylors' Hall
   On the south side of Threadneedle Street at No. 30 (P.O. Directory).
   First mention: "Tailors' Hall," 10 H. VIII. 1519 (L. and P. H. VIII. III. Pt. 2, p. 1534).
   Stow says that it originally belonged to Edmond Crepin and was granted 6th Ed. III. by the name of his principall messuage in the wardes of Cornehill and Brodestreete, which Sir Oliver Ingham did then hold, to John of Yakley the kinges Pavilion Maker and was called the "new hal or Taylers Inne" for a difference from their olde hall about the back side of the red Lion in Basing Lane in the ward of Cordwainer Street (S. 183). The grant to John de Yakeslee the King's tent maker is recorded in Cal. L. Bk. E. p.269, 6 Ed. III. (1332).
   The Hall is shown in the plan of St. Martin Outwich parish, 1599, preserved in the vestry and reproduced in Wilkinson's history of the parish, Plate 1.
   Burnt down in the Fire and rebuilt by Ed. Jerman, reconstructed 1844, re-decorated 1858.
   It had a garden adjoining, shown in the maps of the 17th and 18th centuries.
   The Silver yard measure is preserved here, used by the Company for testing the cloth merchants' measures at Bartholomew Fair.
