Chequer Alley, in which probably this token was issued, is described by Strype in 1720 as "small, but pretty well built and inhabited. In 1572 Mr Osborne, afterwards Sir Edward Osborne, Lord Mayor of London and founder of the Leeds ducal family, possessed tenements here." --[R. and N., 103.]

The Cock and Hoop, to which this token evidently refers, was a tenement known in 1638 as the Cock and Hart.

It was settled by William Whithouse, of St Mary Cray, Kent, in that year, upon his wife, together with an inn called the Black Bull hard by. The Black Bull was later on known as the Three Tuns, and stood between the important Queen's Head and the site of the Christopher. In 1701 the Black Bull was sold by Sir Francis Whithouse, Kt., late a Justice of the King's Bench. In 1720 Cock and Hoop Alley is mentioned as possessing but one house, being a passage to the garden grounds, and the issuer of the token may have resided in that house. --[R. and N., 213.]
