Cock, Derby Lane

Derby Lane C1905 This was an ancient sign in use since the fourteenth century. It was often an indication that in the past cock fighting took place in the yard. In the seventeenth century the sign may also have advertised the sale of cock ale, which was 'ale mixed with the jelly of minced meat of a boiled cock, besides other ingredients'. The Broadgate Muster of c1573-1603 gives Thomas Robynson, a glover, as landlord of the COCK, (Derby Lane), which is owned by Mr. Cole's Charity, at an annual rent of 6s. Two soldiers were billeted here in 1756 and it was also recorded in 1800. These premises persisted until c1800.
