Bly Lane (6″). Cf. Blythefurlong 14thNthStA . Presumably Bly lane, which comes up from Banbury Lane, crosses a nameless tributary of the Nene, and goes to the Nene itself, lay near this furlong. Both alike must have been named from this nameless stream which was clearly another Blithe , v. supra 12n. A further reference to this stream is to be found in pontem de Blye (1253Ass ), aquam de Blythe (1285Ass ), le Blythegrene (1330Ass ), all in the hundred of Wymersley. The lane comes up from Rothersthorpe parish which is in that hundred.
