Abstract
The site extended across nine burgage plots, from North Gray's Close on the west to Chalmer's Close on the east. The plots were consistently referred to in their sale details, called lawyers' protocols, by the surnames of previous owners, frequently those active in the 15th century, and this ownership history became fossilised within the later records. There are sections in this chapter on the site and its general setting, occupants in the 16th century, the 1635 House Mails book, other 17th-century sources and the 18th-19th centuries.
