"STAPLE'S-INN, Holborn, is three houses on the south side, going from Middle-row towards Farringdon-street. It is an inn of Chancery, and an appendage as an inn of court to Gray's-inn. This inn is said to have been anciently a hall for the accommodation of wool-staplers, whence it derived its name; but it was an inn of Chancery before 1415, and in 1529 the benchers of Gray's-inn purchased it for its present purpose." [J. Elmes, A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
