A document of 1502 refers to this lane as being on the west side of ‘Bulstrete’, although its exact location remains uncertain. Chapman in a footnote (The Black Book of Southampton, Volume 3, p12) suggests the south end of Bull (Bugle) Street but the name's resemblance to Merserys Lane suggests the lane that formerly ran to the walls midway between Westgate Street and Blue Anchor Lane. This interpretation is supported by another document of 1392 which however places the anonymous lane on the west side of the Fish Market (St Michael’s Square) implying identification with Blue Anchor Lane.
