East Harding Street, EC4A

Place Name

Named after Agas Haringe, a wealthy widow, who in 1513 left land, tenements and gardens between Fetter Lane and Shoe Lane to the Goldsmiths’ Company so that two poor goldsmiths’ widows could have 1d each a week. The goldsmiths built this and several surrounding streets, including Printer Street, West Harding Street, New Street Square, New Street Hill, Great New Street, Little New Street and Pemberton Row on the land in the 1650s.
