Chancery Lane
 (голосов: 0)
Chancery LaneChancery Lane was constructed by the Knights Templars c.1160 and has a long history with many changes of name. It was recorded as Newstrate (New Street) in the early part of the 13th century. During the reign of Henry III (1216-72) a house was erected on the eastern side of the lane for the conversion of Jews to the Christian faith. The house became famous and Newstrate became Convers Lane. Towards the end of the 13th century, Edward I banished the Jews from the country and the house was used by the Keeper of the Rolls', where the official records of the Inns of Chancery were kept and once again the name of the street was changed to Chancellor's Lane and was recorded as this in 1320.

Eventually this name was superseded (once again) by Chancery Lane, c.1454 and it seems to imply that the Chancellor (of the Rolls) had a personal office or residence in the Lane.

The station was opened as CHANCERY LANE on 30 July 1900. After extensive re-construction, a new station was opened as CHANCERY LANE (GRAYS INN) on 25 June 1934, gradually reverting to just CHANCERY LANE.
