Navy Office

   On the south side of Crutched Friars and east of Seething Lane. In Tower and Aldgate Wards (Strype, I 720-L. Guide, 1758).
   Earliest mention: 1649 (H. MSS. Com. Report of 1899, p.18).
   First rated in St. Olave, Hart Street Poor Rate books in 1656 (Povah, 295).
   Transferred to Somerset House in 1786 and to Spring Gardens in 1869 (Povah, 295).
   The old Navy Office is shown in Strype's map on the western side of Mark Lane over against Sugar Loaf Alley (Strype, Ed. 1720, I. ii. 53).
   The Navy Office was not destroyed in the Fire, largely owing to Pepys' exertions in causing the neighbouring houses to be demolished (Povah, 273).
   Stow places it on the site of the chapel of St. Mary Barking Church, but the Office seems to lie too far north, and it is not even in Barking Church parish.
   Site occupied by Bonded Warehouses in O.S. 1880.
