"Furnival's Inn 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 [about 1824], and rebuilt in a substantial manner by the late Mr Peto, the builder of the New Custom House."<ref name="elmes">James Elmes, M.R. I.
