This was a medieval capital tenement on the east side of French Street between Market Lane and Brewhouse Lane, the rear of the premises stretching as far as the High Street. Originally called Ongerisplace, it was re-named from John Polymond, a late 14th century inhabitant. The site was later known as Watts's House, so called because the family of Isaac Watts lived here c.1675-1735, and Hampton Court.
