Thanks; that is pretty conclusive; in fact the more one looks the more 
references to Prebend Square come to light. It seems that there may have 
been an actual square but that it disappeared under other development. I 
too had checked the original source and such maps as I could. An 
interesting little diversion. Thanks to those who took an interest.
