'Bothaw' derived from 'boathouse', which makes sense when you remember that before the Embankment was built the Thames used be be a lot closer. In existence by 1279, it was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666 and not rebuilt. The site was retained as a churchyard until Cannon Street Railway Station was built in the 1860s.
