- Tenement in "la Bordhawe" in the parish of St. Mary de Coleschirch sold by Serlo de la Bordhawe to Master Robert de Barton, Dean of St. Paul's (1257) (Hist. MSS. Com. 9th Rep. 17).Other references : "Bordhawe," 1287-8 (Cal. L. Bk. A. p.169). "Bordhawe," 3 Ed. I. (Rot. Hund. I. 407). "in Bordhaghe," 1275 (Ct. H.W. I. 25). "la Bordehawe," 1311 (ib. 223). " le Portehawe," 1309-10 (ib. 211).It is possible that in some of these passages it is the lane of the same name that is referred to.Riley suggests that "Bordhawe" was a board-yard or timber-yard (Memorials xi.), and this may well have been the case, as it seems to have been adopted as a surname by its owner at some time prior to the date of the first reference.See Bordhawe Lane.
