Aldgate, Street
   West from Aldgate High Street to Leadenhall Street at its junction with Fenchurch Street (P.O. Directory). In Aldgate Ward. This name has been adopted since O.S. 1848-51.
   Earliest mention: " Alegatestrete," temp. H. III. (Ane. Deeds, A. 7319).
   In the 14th century the name seems to have included part of the street outside the gate even as far as the Parish of St. Dunstan Stepney (Ct. H.W. I.593, II.332. Anc. Deeds, C. 549, and C. 799), and down to Stow's time it extended westward as far as Lime Street (S. 140), including part of the present Leadenhall Street. In the 14th century the name seems to have been also given to the eastern end of Fenchurch Street (Cal. Close R. Ed. III.1364-8, p.338, and Ct. H.W. I.401, 1334-5).
   Other names: " Aldgate Within" (Hatton, 1708-Boyle, 1799). " High Street Aldgate" (Rocque, 1746). " Aldgate High Street" (Horwood, I799-Elmes, 1831).
