Summary[edit]

Description
English: St Nicholas Passage Until it was burned down in 1666 this was the site of St Nicholas Acons. In 1585 the verger found a child weak and hungry on the vestry steps. It was named "Nicholas Acons" brought up within the parish. The boy grew into a fine young man who prospered within the City. Just one problem, whenever he gave his name people assumed it was an alias and so he changed it to Nicholas Acorn. As this man had only just died when The Great Fire occurred the name of the precinct was often recorded in official proceedings as "St Nicholas Acorn" http://www.hrionline.ac.uk/luceneweb/bailey/highlight.jsp?ref=t17991030-26&words=St%20AND%20Nicholas%20AND%20Acorn#firsthil
