Blossoms Inn

   On the west side of Lawrence Lane, Old Jewry, at No.25. In Cheap Ward (Lockie, 1816). At the north-east corner of Honey Lane Market (O. and M. 1677).
   Earliest mention: "Blosmeshyn," 1374 (Hust. Roll. 102 (120).
   Other forms : "Blossemesin," 1375 (ib. 103 (37)). "Blosmysyn," 4 H. IV. 1402 (Cal. P.R. H. IV. 1401-5, p. 160). Described as having a shop on the north in parish of St. Laurence, a garden adjoining in parish of All Hallows, Honey Lane, and a messuage called "Warehous" annexed. " Bosum is Inne," 1459-60 (Ct. H.W. II. 540).
   The name was probably derived from the family of "Blosme," for in 1345 Nicholas Blosme was witness to the grant of a rent issuing from tenements in the parish of St. Laurence, Old Jewry, and the family may well have been at that date in possession of the property (Cal. L. Bk. F. p. 136).
   The name survives in Blossom Inn Yard (q.v.).
