Church Row, Aldgate High Street
   North out of Aldgate High Street, on the north and east sides of St. Botolph's Church and churchyard, to Houndsditch (P.O. Directory). In Portsoken Ward.
   Former names : "Church Lane." "Crown Inn."
   In O. and M. 1677, and Rocque, 1746, "Church Lane" is shown on the north side of the church, while in O. and M. the "Crown Inn" stands on the eastern side of the churchyard, this site being already occupied by "Church Row" in Rocque, 1746.
   In Rocque, the passage on the north side of the church led into a Carpenter's Yard, called "Wood Yard" and also into a Stable Yard.
   It is unnecessary to insist on the origin of the name, which is obviously derived from the proximity of the street to St. Botolph's Church.
