City (EC2) Named from Sir Thomas Gresham. Formerly Cateaton Street, Catte, or Ketton Street; when changed to its present name it also swallowed up Lad Lane and part of Maiden Lane. One of the most important of the old coaching inns, the "Swan with. Two Necks," stood in Lad Lane. From this place an amazing number of coaches and wagons set out every day.
