By William Chaffers


Henry Pinckney, goldsmith, at the sign of the "Three
Squirrels" in Fleet Street, over against St. Dunstan's Church, was
established about this time. Boyne quotes a farthing token issued
by him at the " Three Squirrels" in 1650. In 1666 his house was
burned down. Mr. Noble, in his " Memorials of Temple Bar," states
that the terms of rebuilding were settled by the Commissioners in
April 1 667, and in marking out it appears that Major Pinckney 's
property consisted of four houses leading, on the south frontage, " to
the Temple Garden." In " Pepys' Diary," under date 1st December
1660, we read: "Mr. Shepley and I went into London, and, calling
on Mr. Pinckney, the goldsmith, he took us to the tavern, and gave us
a pint of wine." This business was carried on by Chambers and
Usborne in 1 693, and towards the end of the 18th century it was
taken by Messrs. Gosling.
