Berewards Lane, Bishopsgate

   Stow describes it as on the east side of Bishopsgate extending to Hogge Lane (Petticoat Lane), and says it was of old time called Berwards Lane, but now Hogge Lane (S. 167).
   F In old records it is mentioned in the boundaries of the tenement called "Bruggehous" or "Le Breghus" in the parish of St. Botolph without Bishopsgate, the tenement being bounded on the west by "cursum aque que se ducit de Berewardes lane usque ad cursum aque de mora vocatum Depediche," temp. Ed. I. and II. (MSS. D. and C. St. Paul's, Hist. MSS. Com. 9th Rep. 6b), and 47 Ed. III. 1373 (Cal. L. Bk. G. p. 322).
   It must have been on or near the site of the present Artillery Lane (q.v.).
   As to the derivation of the name, See above.
