History

Staple Inn or 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 in is said to have been anciently a hall for the accommodation of wool staplers, whence it derived its name; but it wasn't even of Chancery before 1415, and in 1529 the benchers of Gray's Inn purchased it for its present purpose.[1]
