Excerpt from A Calendar of the Inner Temple Records, Vol. 1: 21 Hen. VII. (1505)-45 Eliz. (1603) By the time of Henry VII., the separation of the Middle Temple from the old house, thenceforward described as the Inner Temple, had taken place. The precise date of this severance is un certain, but tradition ascribes it to the commencement of the reign of Henry VI. The evidence obtainable upon this matter seems to be as follows. John Thaive (or Thavie), previously mentioned, in the will by which he left his property to his wife, Alice, for her life, and after her death to maintain a chaplain who was to pray for their souls, described his Inn as illud hospicium, in quo apprenticii ad legem habitare solebant. 1 This suggests that at this date (he died in I 348, 21 Edward most of the lawyers had ceased to use it as heretofore, and had moved to their new quarters in the Temple.
