Vill. in Essex near the Thames, a few m. E. of Lond. In J. Heywood's Four
PP. i. 1, the Palmer has been "at the good rood of Dagnam."
The sign of a tavern and ordinary in Holborn, Lond.
(Map GH4) (area only; site unmarked) It was celebrated for its pies, its
ale, and its frumety. In Jonson's Devil
i. 1, Iniquity invites Pug to come to the Custom House and "see how the factors
and prentices play there False with their masters, and geld many a full pack,
To spend it in pies at the D. and the Woolsack." In The
Alchemist i. i. Face tells how he lighted on Dapper "last night, in Holborn,
at the D." In v. 2, Subtle informs Dapper that the Q. of Fairy "would have you
eat no more Woolsack pies, no D. frumety." In Gascoigne Diet. Dronkardes, we read,
"We must have March beer, double, double beer, D.-ale, Rhenish." In Dekker's Satiro.,
we have, "When shall we eat another D.-pie?" In i. 2, 367, Tucca says to Horace,
"I'll not take thy word for a D.-pie."
There was another D. Inn in Cheapside, also famous for its pies. In Penn.
Parl. 32, the writer essays to prove "that a mince-pie is better than a musquet;
and he that dare gainsay me, let him meet me at the D. in Cheap and I will answer
it." This D. was at the corner of Foster Lane (Map L4).
This is the tavern referred to in Middleton's Anything
for a Quiet Life v. 1, where George says of his mistress, "Her sparing in
housekeeping has cost" [her husband] "somewhat; the D: pies can testify." He
had to go there for his meals! In T. Heywood's I.
K. M. B. 257, the Prentis says, "I must needs step to the D. in Chepe to
send a letter into the country to my father." In Cutlers,
Dagger says, "Go before to my house, to the D, in Cheap."
DAME ANNIS A CLEARE
See ANNIS A CLEARE.
The sign of a tavern in St. Katharine's, Lond. In Jonson's Staple
iii. 1, Thomas reports, "The perpetual motion is here found out by an alewife
in St. Katharine's, at the sign of the D. B."
See ANNIS A CLEAR.
The name given to Somerset House by James I on Shrove Tuesday, 1616, in honour of his Q., Anne of D., who had made it her palace. T. Heywood's Mistress was performed here in 1633. In Middleton's Tennis, D. H. is described as "A stately palace and majestical, Of late built up into a royal height Of state." See SOMERSET HOUSE.
Originally Depe-ford, from the ford over the Ravensborne, which here flows into the Thames. On the S. bank of the Thames, 4 m. E. of Lond., the seat of the Royal Dockyard founded by Henry VIII. Here The Golden Hind, the ship in which Drake circumnavigated the world, was long preserved, and its cabin used as a sort of refreshment room for excursionists. D. lay N. of the Old Kent Rd. along which the pilgrims went to Canterbury. In Chaucer C. T. A. 3906, the Host points out Greenwich and D. to the company: "Lo, Depeford and it is half way pryme; Lo, Grenewich ther many a shrewe is inne." In Fam. Vict. i. 1, Jockey brings word to prince Hal: "The town of Detfort is risen with hue and cry after your man which has set upon and hath robbed a poor carrier." In Prodigal ii. 4, Lancelot, being at his house in Kent, says, "We'll ride to Lond.or it shall not need; We'll cross to Detford-strand and take a boat." He then gives his cloak to his servant, saying," I'll have a walk to Dedford." In Ford's Warbeck iii. 1, Dawbeny tells the K. of his victory over Warbeck's supporters at "D.strand bdge," i.e. the bdge. over the Ravensbourne. Harman, in Caveat 24, tells of a notable haunt of prigs between Detforde and Rothered (Rotherhithe). In T. Heywood's I.K.M. B., Hobson goes to D., where he finds and relieves Tawniecoat. In Jonson's Ev. Man I. i. 2, Knowell says, "Go not about it; Drake's old ship at D. may sooner circle the world again." In Eastward iii. 3, Sir Petronel says, "We'll have our provided supper brought aboard Sir Francis Drake's ship that hath compassed the world." In Verses prefixed to Coryat's Crudities on the Sights of Lond., Peacham mentions "Drake's ship at Detford." Marlowe was killed in a tavern brawl at D. at the age Of 29.
(area only; site unmarked)
A house near Baynard's Castle, Lond., on the site of the present Heralds, College, next to Peter's Hill on the N. side of Q. Victoria St. It was built by Thomas Stanley, Earl of D., who married Margaret, the mother of Henry VII. In 1552 it passed into the hands of Edward VI, and in 1555 Mary made it into the Heralds, College. It was destroyed in the Gt. Fire, and rebuilt about 1669. The scene of R3 iv. 5 is located by the modem editors as "a room in Lord Stanley's house "; this would be D. H. In Jonson's Ev. Man O. ii. 2, Fungoso says, "If anybody ask for Sogliardo, they shall ha, him at the Herald's Office yonder by Paul's." D. H. is abt. 200 yards S. of the Cathedral.
The famous tavern No. 2 Fleet St., adjoining Temple Bar. It was close to St. Dunstan's Ch., and the original sign was "the D. and St. Dunstan," and represented the saint pulling the D.'s nose with his pincers. Here were held the meetings of Ben Jonson's Apollo Club (see APOLLO). The landlord's name in Jonson's time was Simon Wadloe, in whose honour Squire Western's favourite song, "Old Sir Simon the K.," was written or adapted. It was pulled down in 1787 to make room for Child's Bank. In Jonson's Memoranda he says, "The 1st speech in my Catiline, spoken by Sylla's ghost, was writ after I parted with my friend at the D. Tavern; I had drunk well that night and had brave notions." In T. Heywood's Lucrece ii. 5, in the list of Roman (Lond.) taverns given by Valerius, we have "The usurer to the D. and the townsman to the Horn." Jonson's Staple iv. 1, is laid at "The D. Tavern. The Apollo." In ii. 1, Pennyboy Canter says, "Dine in Apollo with Pecunia at brave Duke Wadloe's . . . Simon the K. will bid us welcome." In W. Rowley's Match Mid. i., Bloodhound says to Tim, "As you come by Temple Bar, make a step to the D." "To the D., father?" asks Tim; to which Sim replies, "My master means the sign of the D. And he cannot hurt you, fool; there's a saint holds him by the nose." In v. Tim says, "I was never sober since you sent me to the D. yesterday." In Shirley's Wedding ii. 1, Cardona bids Isaac "Run to the D. and bid the vintner make haste with the runlets of claret." In B. & F. Thomas iii. 1, Thomas says, "Say the d. were sick now of a calenture, taken by a surfeit of stinking souls at his nephew's at St. Dunstan's," where evidently the d. of the D. tavern is meant. In Killigrew's Parson iii. 2, the Capt. says, "Go you before to the D. and I'll make haste after," to which Careless replies, "Agreed. We shaft be sure of good wine there." Accordingly, the next scene but one is "at the D." In Underwit ii. 2, Thomas says, "They gave me some hope I might find "(Capt. Sackburie) "at the Divell, where indeed I fetched him out of the fire." In iv. 1, is a song with the lines," The Still-yard's Reanish wine and Divell's white, Who doth not in them sometimes take delight?" In Cowley's Cutter [ed. note The Guardian] i. 6, Worm says that Cutter was "Cromwell's agent for all the taverns between King's-St. and the D. at Temple Bar." Fuller, Church Hist. (1656) ii. 10, 15, says of the story of the D. and St. Dunstan, "None need doubt of the truth thereof, finding it in a sign painted in Fleet St. near Temple ]Bar.'
A st. in Lond. running S. from Cannon St. to Old Fish St., between Old Change and Friday St. It was also called Maiden L., from a sign at its corner. According to Stow it was properly Distar L., and Cordwainers, Hall was on its N. side. It has been absorbed into Cannon St., where Cordwainers, Hall is now at No. 7. The name is preserved in D. L. running from Cannon St., between 6 and 8, to Knightrider St.: this was formerly Little D. L. In Jonson's Christmas, Christmas sings, "Next in the trace, Comes Gambol in place; And, to make my tale the shorter, My son Hercules, tane Out of D.-l., But an active man and a porter." The old story of Hercules being dressed in woman's clothes and exchanging his club for a d. no doubt suggested the line.
Formerly Mountjoy House, at the corner of St. Bennet's Hill and Knightrider St. Lond. It was purchased for the accommodation of the College of the Doctors of the Law in the early part of the reign of Elizabeth. These learned gentlemen had previously been housed in a small building in Paternoster Row, afterwards the Queen's Head Tavern. It included a dining-hall and library, a hall for the hearing of cases and chambers for the doctors. 5 Courts sat here, viz. the Court of the Arches, the Prerogative Court (which dealt with Wills), the Court of Faculties and Dispensations, the Consistory Court of the Bp. of Lond., and the Court of the Admiralty. It was destroyed in the Gt. Fire, but at once rebuilt. It was finally cleared away in 1867, and Q. Victoria St. passes over what was its garden. In Dekker's Shoemaker's ii. 1, Sybil brings greetings to Rose from many of her Lond. friends, including "Mrs. Frigbottom by D. C."
The sign of a tavern in Lond.: perhaps the Talbot in Ludgate St., afterwards known as the Sun, and, later still, as the Queen's Arms. Herrick, in Ode to Jonson, speaks of "those lyric feasts Made at the Sun, The Dog, the Triple Tun."
A contemptuous name for Houndsditch, Lond. This was originally the ditch or moat outside the city wall from Bishopsgate to Aldgate. Stow tells us that the ditch was a filthy receptacle for dead dogs and all kinds of rubbish, but that in his time it was covered over and enclosed by a mud wall. In the field belonging to the Priory of the Holy Trinity, after the dissolution of the monasteries, sellers of old clothes seem to have congregated. In B. & F. Prize ii. 2, Bianca says that Moroso is full "of more knavery and usury and foolery and brokery than D. D."
DOG'S HEAD IN THE POT
The sign of a Lond. shop, somewhere near the N. end of Lombard St. In T. Heywood's I.K.M. B. 282, Tawnie Coat says, "Sure, this is the lane; there's the Windmill; there's the D. H. i. t. P." Such a sign is mentioned by Wynkyn de Worde is Cocke Lorell's Bote; a similar sign is, or was until recently, to be seen over an ironmonger's shop at the corner of Little Charlotte St. and Blackfriars Rd. Angelo, in B. & F. Captain iv. 4, alludes to this sign when he says, "They should be to be sold At the sign of the Whore's Head 1, th, Pottage-pot." In their Cure ii. 2, Bobadilla says, "Cannot . . . the maids make pottage, except your dog's head be in the pot?"
DOGS, ISLE OF
The peninsula in the Thames between the Limehouse, Greenwich, and Blackwall Reaches, now occupied by the West India and Millwall Docks. The name is said to have been given to it because the K.'s hounds were formerly kept there. In Dekker's [sic] Eastward iv. 2, Sir Petronel is wrecked on the Thames and is informed, "You're 1, the I. of D., I tell you." Most of the references are punning ones. In his Satiro. iv. 1, 166, Tucca says to Horace (Jonson), "when the stagerites banished thee into the I. o. D., thou turn'st ban-dog (villainous Guy) and ever since bitest." In the Ret. Pernass. v. 4, Ingenioso says, "Our voyage is to the Ile o. D., there where the blatant beast doth rule and reign, renting the credit of whom it please ": the dogs being the critics. In Middleton's R.G. v. 1, Moll says of Trapdoor, "He hath been brought up in the I. o. D. and can both fawn like a spaniel and bite like a mastiff, as he finds occasion." In B. & F. Thierry iii. 2, Bawdber says, "Where could I wish myself now? In the I. o. D., so I might 'scape scratching." Nash wrote a play called the Isle of Dogs in 1598, for which he was imprisoned in the Fleet. In his Lenten, he says, "The strange turning of the I. o. D. from a comedy to a tragedy 2 summers past is a general rumour that hath filled all England, and such a heavy cross laid upon me as had well near confounded me."
Lond., running N. from Knightrider St. to Carter Lane. It is now called Knightrider Court, and is next to 47 Knightrider St. It was so called because there were no shops in it. In Jonson's Christmas, Venus says of Cupid, "I had him by my 1st husband: he was a smith, forsooth, we dwelt in D.-l. L. then." In Jonson's Magnetic v. 4, Polish says of Alderman Parrot's widow", She dwelt in D.-l.-l.'a-top o' the hill there." In Middleton's Family v. 3, Dryfat says, "The wise woman in Pissing Alley nor she in D.-l. L. are more famous for good deeds than he."
A tavern in Lond. on the E. side of Bishopsgate St. Without, near the end of Houndsditch, where the Friends, Meeting House now stands. In Dekker's Northward iv. 3, Bellamont says, "Stay, yonder's the D. without Bishopsgate." Dekker, in Armourers, says, "O neither the Mermaid nor the D. nor he at Mile-end-green can when he list be in good temper, when he lacks his mistress (that is to say, Money)."
One of the old water-gates of the City of Lond., W. of Lond. Bdge., at the bottom of D. Hill. Stow thinks it was originally called Downe-gate, from the steepness of the hill; but it is more probably from the Celtic Dwr-gate or Water-pte. It gave its name to the D. ward, which was bounded by Swan Lane to the E. and D. Hill to the W., and extended N. not quite as far as Cannon St. From D. Wharf ran the ferry across to St. Saviour's Dock, which, according to legend, was managed in the 10th cent. by one John Overy, whose effigy is still to be seen in St. Saviour's Ch. He was a famous miser, and on one occasion feigned to be dead in order to cheat his men out of a day's meals. He had himself duly laid out, but when he heard the rejoicing of his servants over his death he rose from his bier in a rage, and one of them, thinking it was the devil, knocked his brains out with an oar. There is perhaps a reference to this story in Beguiled (Dods. ix.235), where the Nurse says, "He does strut before her in a pair of Polonian legs, as if he were a gentleman usher to the grand Turk or to the Devil of D." In Dekker's Satiro. iii. 1, 243, Tucca says to Miniver, "My little Devil a D., I'll dam thee." There was an old Ballad called The Devil of D. and his son, on which a play was based, produced in 1623, but now lost. The steepness of D. Hill caused it to be flooded when there was heavy rain: Stow tells of a boy who was carried away by such a rush of water and drowned. In Jonson's Epigram to Inigo Marquis Would-be, he says, "Thy canvas giant at some channel aims, Or D. torrents falling into Thames; And straddling shows the boys, brown paper fleet Yearlv set out there, to sail down the street." In More ii. 1, Harry the prentice praises "George Philpots at D." as the "best backswordsman in England." In Davenant's Wits iii. 1, Mrs. Snore taunts Queasey: "Remember thy first calling; thou set'st up with a peck of damsons and a new sieve; when thou brok'st at D. corner, 'cause the boys flung down thy ware." In the list of taverns in News Barthol. Fair, we find "The Swan at D.; a tavern wellknown." It was visited by Pepys, who describes it as "a poor house and ill-dressed, but very good fish and plenty." Robert Greene died at the house of a shoemaker in D. in 1592.
The name of a tavern in Lond. There was a D. Alley on the N. side of Drury Lane, near Princes St., which may indicate its position. In T. Heywood's Lucrece ii. 5, in the list of Roman (Lond.) taverns given by Valerius, we have "The gardener hies him to the Rose, to the D. the tnan of war."
A street in Lond. running from Broad St., Bloomsbury, to Wych St.; it debouches into Aldwych, in which the S. end of it has been absorbed. It took its name from D. Place, a mansion built by Sir Roger D., who died in 1495, which was afterwards called Craven House: it was taken down in 1800 and Astley's Olympic Pavilion built on its site. A portion of it became the Craven Head Tavern, but the new Aldwych has removed the last traces of it. The old name of the st. was Via de Aldwych, which has been happily preserved in the recent improvements; and part of it was called Prince's St. during the reign of James I. The Cockpit, or Phoenix, Theatre was on the E. side of the Lane, and its name was long preserved in Cockpit Pi., later known as Pitt Court. The present Theatre Royal was founded in 1663, and the Cockpit ceased to be used as a theatre. In St. Hilary's Tears (1642), the author speaks of "Covent Garden, Long-Acre, and D. L., where those doves of Venus [the wanton ladies] do build their nests." In Middleton's Chess ii. 1, the Black Knight, exhibiting a sheaf of letters from various women of bad character, says, "These from the nunnery in D. L." In Brome's Covent G. iii. 1, Clotpoll asks, "Art not acquainted with My 2 poetical D.-L. writers, the cobler and the tapster 4 "References to D. L. are common in the 18th cent., and its reputation as a haunt of vice was well maintained. Glapthorne's Hollander was "acted at the Cock-pit in D. L."
The sport of ducking or duckhunting with dogs was a favourite one with the citizens of Lond. The principal D. Ps. were on Islington Green, in the Back Rd. near White Conduit House, and in East Lane; but the sport was also pursued at the Dog and Duck in Hertford St., Mayfair, at Jenny's Whim in Pimlico, at the Dog and Duck in Rotherhithe, near the present entrance to the Commercial Docks, at the Dog and Duck in St. George's Fields, Lambeth, and elsewhere. In Brome's New Academy ii. 1, Camelion tells his wife, "I have a match to play at the d.-p."; and he makes many references in the play to his devotion to this sport. In his Damoiselle ii. 1, Amphilus says, "If I can but purchase him [a certain dog] and my own whelp prove right, I will be Duke of the D.-P."

A lane in Lond. running N. from Little Britain into W. Smithfield. It was rechristened Duke St. later, and is now included in Little Britain. Strype says in his edition of Stow's Survey of London (1720), "It is generally inhabited by Booksellers that sell second-hand books." But there were also publishers of new books there. Friar Bacon was printed "for W. Thackery at the Angel in D. L." Other booksellers in the Lane were J. Hardesty, J. Huntington, T. Jackson, and W. Whitewood. T. Heywood's Dialogues "are to be sold by Thomas Slater at the Swan in D.-l. 1637." In Brome's Covent G. ii., Mihiel says, "Go, borrow me a gown and some 4 or 5 law-books, for, I protest, mine are in D.-l.," i.e. sold to the booksellers there. Alexander Gill, in his rhymes on Ben Jonson's Magnetic Lady, says of that play, "From Buckler's Bury let it not be barred, But think not of D. L. or Paul's Churchyard ": which shows that D. L. publishers were regarded as quite respectable. In Whetstone's Promos B. i. 5, the Merchant Tailors ask for a place to present their pageant; Phallax asks: "How say you to the end of D. Alley?" to which the Bedell objects, "There all the beggars in the town will be." In iv. 1, Gresco, a good substantial officer, orders his 2 blue-coated beadels, "Search Ducke Alley, Cocke Lane, and Scouldes Corner "for idle vagabonds. In Davenant's Wits v., Mrs. Snore says to Thrift, "Remember the warrant thou sent'st for me into D. L., cause I called thy maid Trot."
DUKE HUMPHREY'S WALK
Applied to a part of St. Paul's Ch., Lond., on the S. side of the nave, where there was a monument supposed to be that of the good D. Humphrey of Gloucester; he was, however, buried at 'St. Albans, and the monument in question belonged to John Beauchamp, constable of Dover, who died in .1358. From the custom of fellows in want of a dinner betaking themselves to St. Paul's to see if they could meet with someone who would invite them arose the phrase "to dine with D. Humfrey ": which meant to do without dinner. Dekker, in Hornbook, chap. iv., says, "All the diseased Horses in a tedious siege cannot shew so many fashions as are to be seen for nothing every day in D. Humfryes walk." The point of the joke is that "fashions" was commonly used for "farcy," a disease of horses. See Shrew iii.2, 53. Nash, in Pierce A. 3, says, "I retired me to St. Paul's, to seek my dinner with D. Humfrey." In W. Rowley's Match Mid. ii. 1, Jarvis says of Alexander and ancient Young, "Are they none of D. Humfrey's furies, do you think, that they devised this plot in Paul's to get a dinner?" In Mayne's s Match iii. 3, Plotwell calls Seathrift "your penurious father who was wont to walk his dinner out in Paul's," and Timothy adds: "Yes, he was there as constant as D. Humphrey." This may be the explanation of the difficult passage in R3 iv. 4, 176, where his mother asks Richd. " What comfortable hour canst thou name That ever graced me in thy company?" To which he answers: "Faith, none but Humphrey hour, that called your Grace To breakfast once forth of my company." It is suggested that "Humphrey hour "means the hour of hunger; but the explanation may be questioned. See also under PAUL's (ST.).
Lond., at the N. part of what is now Duke St, Aldgate. It was called after Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk, beheaded 1572. It was the seat of a priory of the Holy Trinity, founded by Matilda, Q. of Henry Beauclerc; and in 1622 a new ch., dedicated to St. James, was built in the priory precinct, which became notorious for the celebration of irregular marriages. It was taken down in 1874, but St. James Pl. retains the name. In Reasons in a Hollow Tree, we are told of the funeral sermon preached over "an old man that died in the parish of St. James, near D. P., Aldgate," which held the record for brevity: "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, Here's the hole, and in thou must."
A theatre in Portugal Row, Lincoln's Inn Fields, Lond., opened by Davenant in 1660: it was originally Lisle's Tennis Court. The company left it in 1671. Davenant's Playhouse to be Let deals with this theatre.

There were 2 churches dedicated to St. Dunstan in Lond. The best known was St. D. in the W., in Fleet St. on the N. ride, between Fetter Lane and Chancery Lane (Map G5) . It was built in 1237; it escaped the Gt. Fire, and stood till 1831, when it was replaced by the present building. The projecting clock, or "Diall," was there in Shakespeare's time, but the 2 figures that struck the hours were not set up till 1667, though Scott, in the Fortunes of Nigel, makes Moniplies speak of "The two Iron Carls yonder, at the Kirk beside the Port, banging out sax o, the clock." The church ran lengthwise along the st., and at the E. and W. ends were a number of booksellers, shops. The 2nd quarto of Hamlet was "Printed by I. R. for N. D. and are to be sold at his shop under St. Dunstons Ch. in Fleet St. 1604." Another edition was "Printed by W. S. for John Smethwicke and are to be sold at his shop in St. D. Churchyard is Fleet-st., under the Diall." The Qq. of 1611 and 1636 were published at the same place. Smethwick also published 3 Qq. of Romeo and Juliet, the 1st dated 1609. Other St. D. printers and booksellers were Thomas Marsh, the publisher of Stow's Chronicles; William Griffith, who issued the 1st (unauthorized) edition of Gorboduc; Richard Marriott, Matthias Walker, and John. Browne. In Middleton's Five Gallants, Frippery has clients in St. D. parish (i. 1). Nearly opposite to the ch. at No. a Fleet St. was the Tavern of St. D. and the Devil, commonly known as The Devil Tavern (q.v.). In Dekker's Edmonton iv. 1, Cuddy says, "The Devil in St. D. will as soon drink with this poor cur as with any Temple-Bar laundress that washes and wrings lawyers." In Jonson's Staple, prol., the author says, "What is it to his scene, to know If D. or the Phoenix best wine has?" In B. & F. Thomas iii. 1, Thomas speaks of the devil being "sick of a calenture, taken by a surfeit of stinking souls, at his nephew's at St. D." He means the Devil of the Devil Tavern, opposite the ch.
St. D., in the E. is on St. D. Hill, close to the corner of Gt. Tower St. (Map R6) . It was reduced to bare walls by the Gt. Fire and restored by Wren, who modelled the tower on that of St. Nicholas at Newcastle-on-Tyne. It was rebuilt in 1817. In Fair Women i. 273, Browne asks Mrs. Drury where Mrs. Saunders lived. She answers: "Against St. D. Ch." Browne asks: "St. D. in Fleet st.?""No," says the lady, "neat Billingsgate St. D. in the E.; That's in the W."
The Lond. house of the Bps. of D., built by Anthony de Beck, bp. in the reign of Edward 1, and rebuilt by Thomas Hatfield in 1345. It stood on the S. side of the Strand, just W. of Ivy Bridge Lane, and was "high, stately, and supported by lofty marble pillars." Cuthbert Tunstall conveyed it to Henry VIII, and it remained in the hands of the Crown until Elizabeth bestowed it on Raleigh. James I built his New Exchange on the site of its stables; and in 1768 the brothers Adam bought the house itself and rebuilt upon its site the block of buildings known as the Adelphi (brothers): the names of the 4 brothers being perpetuated in John, Robert, James, and William Sts. D. St. preserves the ancient name. In More v. 1, when Sir Thos. is arrested, a warder asks, "From whence is he committed? Who can tell?" And is answered, "From D. H., I hear."
The ch. of Austin Friars, Lond., q.v. It was granted to the D. by Edward VI for their religious services. In Wapull's Tarrieth B. 4, Helpe says, "To sell a lease dear, whoever that will, At the French or D. ch. let him set up his bill. What an Englishman bids they will give as much more."
DUTCH HOUSE OF MEETING
Used for the Stillyard, q.v. In Dekker's Westward v. 2, Birdlime wishes to speak "with the gentlewomen here that drunk with your Worship at the D. house of meeting." See ii. 3, where the incident is described.
See under EXCHANGE.
