Sir Thomas Herbert's House

Sir Thomas Herbert's House, often known as Herbert House, is a Grade I listed building in York, dating from the 16th and 17th centuries.

In the mid-16th century, the Company of Merchant Adventurers of York owned a house on Marketshire, a street which was becoming known as Pavement. They let out the house to Christopher Herbert, a merchant who later became Lord Mayor of York. He purchased the property in 1557, and later passed it on to his son, Thomas, who acquired properties including one neighbouring to the rear, facing onto Lady Peckett's Yard. In 1606, Thomas' grandson was born in the house. He later became Sir Thomas Herbert, 1st Baronet, and the house is now named after him.
