Newcastle, Pilgrim Street, House of Laurentius Acton
According to Bourne (1736) a little below the Hall of the Taylors (HER 6518) was probably the house of Laurentius Acton, which was next door to the house of Thomas Waters. Acton was Mayor of Newcastle in 1433, and 1435-1437 in the reign of Henry VI. The wheat and rye market lay opposite Acton's house.
