Farringdon Ward Within
   One of the twenty-six wards of the City, bounded on the north by Farringdon and Aldersgate Wards Without, on the east by Aldersgate Ward Within, Cripplegate Ward and Bread Street Ward, south by Castle Baynard Ward and The Thames, west by Farringdon Ward Without.
   First mention: "Ward of William de Farendon within and without," 1287 (Cal. L. 13k. A. p. 228).
   Prior to 17 Richard II., Farringdon Within and Without formed one ward under one Alderman, but in that year it was ordained by the King with the assent of Parliament that, owing to increase of property and of the inhabitants of the Ward of Farndone Within and Without, an Alderman should thenceforth be elected by the good men of the Ward of Farndone Within and another by the good men of the Ward of Farndone Without (Cal. L. Bk. H.p. 407).
   Since this time they have formed two separate wards, one within the walls and the other without.
   Boundaries agreed 1787, between St. Anne Blackfriars and St. Bride's parishes.
   Took name of W. Farendon Goldsmith, Alderman of the Ward 1281, he having acquired the Aldermanry by purchase (S. 312).
   Other names : "Ward of Lodgate and Neugate," 1285 (Cal. L. Bk. A. p. 209). "Ludgate Within," 1297 (Cal .L. Bk. B. p. 236). "Ward of Flete Strete," 1310 (ib. D. p. 236. "Ward of Anketin d'Auverne within the Gate" (Cal. L. Bk. A. p. 226), 1275-6, (Cal. L. Bk. B. p. 261). "Ward of Nicholas de Farndone Within," 33 Ed. I. (Cal. L. Bk. C. p. 145).
   It contained six parish churches, viz. St. Audoen ; St. Nicholas Shambles ; St. Ann Blackfriars ; St. Martin Ludgate ; St. Augustine ; St. Matthew Friday Street.
   Only the last three now remain.
