Gresham Street
   West from Old Jewry, at No. 22 to No. 59 St. Martin's le Grand (P.O. Directory). In Cripplegate Within, Cheap, Coleman Street and Bassishaw Wards.
   This street was so named in 1845, superseding the old names "Lad Lane" and "Cateaton Street." At this date it extended only so far as Wood Street, but in 1877 it was further extended to St. Martin's le Grand and then comprised the whole of the streets previously known as "St. Anne's Lane" and "Gresham Street West."
   Further details as to these various streets will be found under their respective names, Cateaton Street, Lad Lane, Gresham Street West, St. Ann's Lane.
   Remains of Roman pavements, pottery, etc., have been found here in Cateation Street and Lad Lane.
