You might like to look at some of the history of St Etheldreda's church
Ely Place commemorates a London palace of the Bishops of Ely, the earliest
record[s] are from 1286 when
the bishop was John de Kirkby. When he died in 1290, he
[bequeathed] a messuage and adjoining
tenements to his successor. The will refers to the property as in
the parish of St Andrew near Holborn.
Kirkby's successor was Wm du Luda, who held the see between 1290
and 1298. It is believed that the
chapel on the ground left by Kirkby during this time. The garden
at Ely was noted for its strawberrys, as
recorded in Shakespeare's Richard III, where the Duke of Gloster
says, "My Lord of Ely when I was last
in Holborn, I saw good strawberries in your garden there, I do
beseech you send for some of them." The
gardens [of] the bishop sloped down to the River Fleet; and
probably Plum Tree Court, Saffron Hill and
Vine Street derive [their] name from them. Saffron Hill - once a
liberty or area free from jurisdiction of the
county sheriffs and magistrates, and the haunt of undesirable
characters. It is the background for much of
The thoroughfare known as Ely Place is unique in several
respects. The gate is closed nightly at 10, and
up to 1939 from that hour until 6am one of the three watchmen, on
duty in turn, paraded round the
cul-de-sac calling out the hours. At one time the weather was
also announced. Next to the chapel is St
Audrey's House. St Audrey was a popular name for St Etheldreda,
who died of a tumour to in the throat
caused by the early love of necklaces. At the fair at Ely,
necklaces and lace were sold as St Audrey's.
From this was derived the word tawdry, "You promised ma a
tawdry-lace and a pair of sweet gloves."
