The Vintry

The Vintry
   There seem to have been a district, a house, and a street all bearing this name in early times.
   Stow describes the district as a part of the banke of the River of Thames, where the merchants of Bordeaux craned their wines out of Lighters and other vessels and then landed them and sold them. Afterwards they built houses for themselves and cellars in which to store their wines (S. 240). It seems to have extended into Dowgate Ward, 20 Rich. II. (Anc. Deeds, A. 2677).
   The house is described by Stow as a large house built of stone and timber, with vaults for the stowage of wines. John Gisors dwelled there and Henry Picard, both Vintners (S. 241).
   It probably stood between Three Cranes Lane and Church Lane, opposite St. Martin's. Church.
   The street so named may well have been a part of Upper Thames Street, intersecting the ward from east to west, and extending into Dowgate Ward.
   Earliest mention: Land in parish of St. James versus "vinitariam," 1170 (H. MSS Com. 9th Rep. p.13).
   Other notice : " Vinetria," 31 Ed. I. (Lib. Cust. I. 229 and 238). " Vinetrie," 1347 (L. Bk. F. fo. 136 in Riley's Mem. p. liv). " le Vyntrye," 1402 (Ct. H.W. II. 366). Street called " la Vinetrie," 1345 (Cal. Close R. Ed. III. 1343-6, p.492). Street called The Vyntre" in parish of Alhallows the More, 4 Ed. VI. (Lond. I. p.m. I. 81). (This would be in Dowgate Ward.)
