The Blue Boar

   On the east side of Fish Street Hill, adjoining King's Head Court.
   It was so called before the Fire and had been devised to the poor of the parish of St. Margaret, Fish Street Hill.
   Part of the site was not rebuilt after the Fire, but was taken for the enlargement of the street, and the new buildings erected extended over adjoining land (St. Margaret, Fish Street Hill, Rep. End. Ch. 1903, p. 4).
