Victorian London - Legal System - Inns of Chancery - Clement's Inn

CLEMENT'S INN, STRAND. An Inn of Chancery, appertaining to the Inner Temple, and so called "because it standeth near to St. Clement's-church, but nearer to the fair fountain called Clement's-well;" (Stow, p.166) hence Holywell-street adjoining; the well supplies a pump.

Peter Cunningham, Hand-Book of London, 1850
