Holbourn (sic) sweeps west to east with many inns across this segment of the 1746 [not 1564 or 1662] map; perhaps the George was here?

Holborn, a main thoroughfare of London from New Oxford Street by Drury Lane end to the Holborn Viaduct by Hatton Garden. From Drury Lane to Brook Street it is called "High Holborn;" from Brook Street to Fetter Lane and Hatton Garden "Holborn;" and from Fetter Lane to Farringdon Street was "Holborn Hill," but the hill and the name were got rid of when Holborn Viaduct was constructed. "Holborn Bars" marks the termination of the City Liberties to the west. At Farringdon Street stood a stone bridge over the Fleet.
