Lincoln’s Inn ~ The Inner Court

My ancestor Sir Edward Drewe was a member of the Inner Court having been knighted by Queen Elizabeth in about 1589.  I’ve often wondered how a barrister conducted himself in court in that day.

The original Lincoln’s Hall was built about 1428 and by today’s standards was very small at 71 by 32 feet.  Since that early day, the hall has been enlarged a number of times as we can see in this 19th century sketch.
