It consists of a small quadrangle of handsome dwelling houses, principally occupied by barristers and solicitors. On the eastern side is the handsome edifice belonging to the Amicable Society designed by Mr. Adam." [J. Elmes, A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
