The chamber of Yeldehalle in Candelwikestrete, 1369, in the parish of St. Clement (Cal. L. Bk. G. p.258).

Not identified.

Riley suggests that it may be identical with the "Aula Dacorum," the Guildhalla Teutonicorum, called "Olde Hall" by Stow in his description of Dowgate Ward (Memorials, xv.), But this is impossible, as no portion of the parish of St. Clement is in Dowgate Ward. Stowe does not identify "Olde Halle" with the "Guildhalla Teutonicorum," the hall of the Hanse merchants.
