It is well known that there are numerous ancient sites and buildings in this country whose nomenclature brings (or brought) them into hypothetical association with the Jews. It will be best, therefore, to begin this enquiry by drawing up a provisional list:
The JEWRY WALL, Leicester.
MARKET JEW, Cornwall.
JEWS' MOUNT, Oxford. H. E. Salter, Oxford City Properties, 1926, 207–12.
The JEWS' HALL, Winchelsea.
The JEW GATE, Newcastle: otherwise Silver Street, a name dating at least from the 17th century. Archaeologia Aeliana, 2 Ser., XXIV, 156–7.
The JEWS' MEADOW, Horsham. N. & Q., 1936, 1, 27.
The JEWRY, Martley, Worcs.: an Elizabethan house.
To the above must be added sites no longer identifiable on the ground but known from historical records:
