King Street, Cheapside


King Street, Cheapside
   North out of Cheapside at No. 92, across Gresham Street to the Guildhall (P.O. Directory). In Cheap Ward. Erected after the Fire of 1666 to provide better access to the Guildhall.
   A Committee of the Common Council was held as to the making of the new street called King Street, between Guildhall and Cheapside, 1667 (L. and P. Chas. II. 1666-7, p. 541).
   "New King Street" (O. and M. 1677).
   Strype uses both the names "New King Street" and "King Street" (ed. 1720, I. iii. 51, 52).
   When this street was first made the name King Street was only given to that portion of it which extended from Cheapside to Gresham Street (then called Cateaton Street), the northern portion to the Gulldhall being called "Guildhall Yard." The name, "King Street" was only given to this northern portion within recent years.
