Alban’s Street, Pall Mall. A street so called (but removed to make way for Regent-street) after Henry Jermyn, Earl of St. Alban, from whom Jermyn-street derives its name.

“28th December, 1710. I came home to my new lodging, in St. Alban-street, where I pay the same rent (eight shillings a week) for an apartment, two pair of stairs; but I have the use of the parlour to receive persons of quality.” – Swift, Journal to Stella.
