Speaking of Blackfriars.....

I have a question.  In Nicholas Breton's writing he often would sign
"from my chamber at Black Fryers"  My assumption is that he does not
mean the theatre or the location of the Gate House purchased by
Shakespeare and others in 1613.

Can anyone shed light on the place Breton is referencing?

Many thanks.
Ira Zinman
