"The Jews in Canterbury seemed at one time to have been rather numerous; until the last fifty years, they lived mostly without the city walls. Anciently, however, they were localized in the place called after them "Jewry Lane." Their houses here, according to Somner, were nearly twenty in number, and they had a synagogue close by at a place which was on the site of an old Inn, "the Saracen's Head," the stone parlour of which was mounted upon a vault, and ascended by stone steps. Here was also the school of the Jews. Ancient inscriptions - being canticles and extracts from the psalms once bore witness to the imprisonments and proscription of the Jews of Canterbury." COT 1879

George Rotheram for collapse of a mud wall in Jury "sic" Lane which has made the lane dirty. CC/JQ/318/viii 1518

"...Proceeding westward, on the left, is Jewry-lane, formerly inhabited by Jews, who had a school or synagogue, till they were expelled the kingdom by Edward II. about twenty years ago, a fair mosaic pavement, of a carpet pattern, was discovered here, in digging a cellar, between three and four feet below the level of the street. The tesselae were of burnt earth, red, yellow, black and white. A few paces farther brings us to King's or East Bridge, with All Saints Church."

The Kentish Traveller's Companion 1776


Proceeding still westward, on the left hand, is Jury, or rather Jewry-lane, for the Jews were formerly settled here, and had a school, or synagogue, till they were expelled the kingdom by King Edward I. and their houses seized by him.
