Barnard's Inn (ex. par.)

Primary tabs

"BARNARD'S, or BERNARD'S-INN, Holborn is situated on the south side of Holborn, westward of Fetter-lane, and near Dyer's-buildings. It was anciently called Mackworth's-inn having been the residence of Dr. John Mackworth, who was dean of Lincoln in the reign of Henry VI.; but being afterwards in possession of a gentleman of the name of Barnard, it received his name. It was given to the society by Dr. Mackworth's executors in 1454. This is one of the inns of the court of Chancery, and consists of a principal and three ancients, besides other members, who are compelled to be in common a fortnight in two terms, and ten days in the other two." [J. Elmes, A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
