Guthrum

.

Silver of Guthrum, or silver of Guthrum’s Lane. Fine silver was at one time so called, because the chief gold and silver smiths of London resided there in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The hall of the Goldsmith’s Company is still in the same locality. (Rilcy: Munimenta Gildhallœ.)
