On the Rocque map Chancery Lane runs down and off the lower right side of this segment.
The street had the name before the court of Chancery had any prominence. It was "Chancellor's Lane," and the office of the Chancery was at "The Rolls," the former "Domus Conversorum" or "House of [Jewish] Converts." The site is now the library of King's College, formerly the Public Record Office. Lincoln's Inn is across the street, where it moved about 1420 from Holborn.
