The Bear

   1) Tenement so called in Botolph Lane in 1544 (Strype, ed. 1720, I. ii. 172).
   This tenement was devised by James Mounford in 1544 to the parson and churchwardens of St. George Botolph Lane and the churchwardens receive annually £10 10s. from the Treasurer of St. Thomas's Hospital for the poor of the parish, it being discovered after the Fire of 1666 that this sum had been paid to them for many years out of three messuages called the White Bear in Botolph Lane, at that time in the hands of the Corporation of London (End. Ch. 1903, p. 1), as Governors of the Hospital. The house was burnt in the Fire and rebuilt, 1671.

   Removed c. 1831, for the formation of the approaches to the new London Bridge (ib.).
   3) Messuage and tenement called the Bear in parish of St. Katherine Creechurch in Aldgate Ward (Strype, ed. 1720, I. ii. 64).
