Information from NMR
House, Nos. 2, 4, 6, occupies the plot of land given before 1189 by Erneis de Mykelgate to St. Peter's Hospital (EYC, 1, 176–7). The present building was originally a large timber-framed, L-shaped structure, jettied towards Micklegate and with a N.–S. range at the back, against the E. end (late 16th-century). In the early 18th century the S. part of the E. wall was cased in brick, and in Nos. 4, 6 an impressive staircase was inserted and some good doorcases and bolection-moulded panelling were fitted. The main front to Micklegate was rebuilt c. 1840, the jetties removed and the house heightened; in the later 19th century the W. side of the back range was cased in brick. In 1759 the property was acquired by Alderman John Wakefield, Lord Mayor in 1766, and was later known as Wakefield Court (YCA, E.94, f. 25v.). In 1831 the property was bought by Joseph Shilleto, a butcher, and No. 2 became his shop, while the entry between Nos. 2 and 4 took the name of 'Shilleto's Yard', though officially described as St. John's Court.
