      In the chancel of Norton Church is a memorial slab to Willm Robinson of London, Gent, d.29.04.1667, whose 3rd daughter, Martha, married Henry Eve DD of Linste(d). She and her sister, married to Baptist Pigott of Norton Court, payed for the memorial slab.

      The Calthorpe Estate occupies the south-eastern corner of the parish of St. Pancras between Gray's Inn Road on the west, the Fleet River on the east, the parish boundary on the south and Battle Bridge Field on the north.
      ....John Hobson, citizen and haberdasher of London conveyed to John Robinson, citizen and merchant taylor of London in 1585. This John Robinson, elected alderman for Aldgate Ward in 1592, died on 19th February, 1600. (ref. 24) His son, John Robinson, died 22nd November, 1609, holding in St. Pancras three closes of pasture (36 acres) in the occupation of Lewis Owen, Knyston and Smith, which he bequeathed (ref. 25) to his third son, William Robinson. He also owned the manor of Denston Hall or Denardiston Hall in Suffolk which went to his eldest son, John Robinson, aged 25. In 1659 William Robinson, then of Great Stanmore, Middlesex, sold (ref. 26) the estate to his nephew, John Robinson of Gravesend. It was then described as Middle Close (13 acres), a close adjoining this on the north side (11 acres), formerly in the occupation of Thomas Cotterell and then of William Blunt, and a close of 10 acres (fn. a) adjoining the last mentioned close on the north. All were in "Portepole" in St. Pancras, near the north end of Gray's Inn Lane, abutting west on the highway and east on Turners Brook [the Fleet] and the "way or Comon there belonging to Kentish Town."
      John Robinson of Gravesend bequeathed (ref. 27) it to his younger son, William, on whose death without issue it came to his elder brother, Sir John Robinson of Denardiston, who married Amy, daughter of Sir Gervase Elves, and died in 1704. (ref. 28) Dame Amy Robinson and her son in 1706 conveyed (ref. 11) to Richard Gough, of London, merchant,

      At the east end of the Poultry is Grocers' Alley, formerly Conyhope Lane, of which Stow says : " Then is Conyhope Lane, of old time so called of such a sign of three conies hanging over a poulterer's stall at the lane's end. Within this lane standeth the Grocers' hall, which company being of old time called Pepperers, were first incorporated by the name of Grocers in the year 1345." The Grocers' Hall really opens into Princes Street.

      In 1589-90 a Mr. Robinson was 'reputed to be' owner of the property adjoining 32, and the Robinson family continued to hold the freehold of 33-4 and the property in Coneyhope Lane....In 1646 William Robinson, citizen and mercer, owned the Coneyhope Lane property, and probably therefore also 105/33-34. Fletcher occupied this c. 1650, and in 1656, when William Robinson, gentleman, of Stanmore, Middlesex, conveyed his lands by fine to Edward Fenn of Staples Inn, to hold to the use of himself, his heirs and assigns, 33- 34 was described as a messuage or tenement called the Queen's Head in St. Mary Colechurch parish, now or late occupied by Fletcher. Robinson was named as the owner of 34 in a Crown rental of 1664 relating to former chantry properties. (fn. 7) According to the Hearth Tax lists, however, 33-4 was probably occupied in 1662-3, when it had 5 hearths, by John Heginbotham, and in 1666, when it had 6 hearths, by Mr. Perkins. (fn. 8)
      William Robinson died in 1667 and the property descended to his 5 daughters, Barbara, wife of Thomas Frere, Katherine, wife of Baptist Piggott, Martha, wife of Henry Eve, D.D., Anne, wife of Thomas Woodroffe, and Mary, wife of Richard Michelborne. In 1668 33-34 was said to be late occupied by John Fletcher, barber, and now by Richard Michelburne. In 1669 a foundation was surveyed for Mr. Michelborow. This consisted of a plot corresponding in size to 2 of the 13th-century stone shops (33 and 34) and an irregularly-shaped plot behind probably corresponding to land leased or granted out of 26 (see above). A strip was cut off the front plot to widen Poultry, measuring 4 ft. 8 in. (1.42 m.) wide at the W. end at 3 ft. 3 in. (990 mm.) at the E. end, containing 56 sq. ft. (5.2 sq. m.). Mr. Michebourne was compensated for this in 1674. (fn. 9)
      The property was part of that share of William Robinson's estate which passed to his daughter Mary and her husband Richard Michelborne, citizen and clothworker, and then to their daughter and heir Mary. This Mary married William Orde, citizen and stationer, and in 1697, as Orde's widow, was about to marry John Howe son of John Howe, citizen and draper. Her mother Mary was still alive in 1697, married to Peter Vink. The property, a messuage built at the expense of Richard Michelborne and now occupied by Joshua Sharp or his undertenants, formed part of the younger Mary's marriage settlement in 1697. (fn. 10)
