Aldgate Churchyard, New
   There appears to have been a new churchyard or burial ground attached to the Church of St. Botolph, Aldgate, for the use of the parishioners in the 18th century, on the east side of Churchyard Alley, Rosemary Lane.
   It is described by Strype (ed. 1720, I. ii. 26) as within the boundary of the Ward of Portsoken, which must therefore at that time have included, as it originally did, the districts of St. Katherine's and East Smithfield.
   The site was afterwards covered by Royal Mint Square (q.v.).
