Billiter Square

Billiter Square
   West out of Billiter Street at No. 11. In Aldgate Ward and Langbourn Ward (P.O. Directory).
   Seems to be in course of formation in Strype's map, 1720, and in the text he speaks of the buildings as new (I. ii. 82). Mentioned in Hatton, 1708, "as very small, but pleasant and good buildings."
   Povah says the houses on the north side and nearly all on the south side have been largely rebuilt (1894) (Annals of St. Olave Hart St. p.314).
   Name derived from Billiter Lane or Street.
