"FURNIVAL'S-INN, Holborn, is on the north side between Leather-lane and Gray's-inn-lane. It is one of the Inns of Chancery, and took its name, according to Stow, from having anciently belonged to Sir William Furnival. It has been taken down about seven years ago, and rebuilt in a substantial manner by the late Mr. Peto, the builder of the New Custom House." [J. Elmes, A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
