Scotland Yard

Today we associate Scotland Yard with law enforcement, however, I've read that Sir Christopher Wren had lodgings in Scotland Yard from the mid-1600s until his retirement as Superintendent of Works. My questions arising from this are:

What was the origination of Scotland Yard, and who of the royal employees would have been granted lodgings there as a part of his employment perks? (I've googled "Scotland Yard" but only get information on present day SY.)

Are any of these old buildings still a part of the Scotland Yard complex?

Any answers or reference direction anyone can provide would be VERY helpful.

Thank you,
