Bishops of London, Palace of

   On the north-west side of St. Paul's Church (S. 373).
   Mentioned by Ralph de Diceto in his Opera Historica, ii. 115, in 1194.
   In 32 Ed. III. John Lovekyn the Mayor and the Commonalty granted to Michael de Northburgh, bishop of London, a parcel of land near the stone wall of the Bishop's palace, between the corner tenement called "le Briggehous" and the end of the wall opposite the great gate of the hostel of the Countess of Pembroke (Cal. L. Bk. G. p. 132).
   The eastern boundary of the Palace seems to have been the wall of Pardon Church Haugh, to the south it adjoined the cathedral itself ; Ave Mary Lane formed the western boundary and the northern boundary was formed by Paternoster Row.
   This included the site of London House Yard (q.v.).
   In Strype's time converted into tenements, called the Bishop of London's Yard, the ground rents belonging to the Bishop (Strype, ed. 1720, I. iii. 230).
   There is an interesting account of the Palace with plans of its site in the Trans. L. and M. Arch. Soc. N.S. I. (2), p. 13 et seq. and of its prisons, etc.
   The Bishops of London removed to Aldersgate Street in the 17th century.
   See London House.
