Monte Jovis Inn


Monte Jovis Inn
   On the south side of Fenchurch Street, opposite the Pump and next to Northumberland Alley west (S. 151).
   The site of the inn is shown on the O.S. 1875.
   First mention: Land of brethren of Mountjoy (Monte Jovis), c. 1268 (Anc. Deeds, A. 7350), adjoining land in parish of Allhallows Colemanchirch west.
   Later notice : "Montjeofysyn," within the gate of Algate belonging to convent of Mont Joux in Savoy, 14 Rich. II. 1391 (Cal. P.R. Rich. II. 1388-2, p. 417).
   Stow says that this house belonged to the Prior of Monte Ioues or Monasterie Cornute in Essex, which was a cell to Monte Ioues, and that it was the Prior's Inn when he came to the City (S. 151), and we find from Dugdale that this Hornchurch Priory or Monasterium Cornutum was founded by Henry II. as a Cell to the Hospital de Monte Jovis on the Great St. Bernard (Dugdale, VI. 652-3).
   If, therefore, the tenement of the Master of Hornchurch is to be identified with Monte Jovis Inn, the inn would appear to have adjoined the great garden of Colemanhawe, 2 Ed. II. (Anc. Deeds, A. 1495).
   Dugdale says Richard II. granted the Priory to William of Wykeham for New College (VI. 652-3).
