   West out of Bishopsgate at No.109 to New Broad Street south of St. Botolph's Church (P.O. Directory). In Bishopsgate Ward Without.
   First mention: Rocque, 1746.
   It is narrower in this map and looks little more than a footpath.
   Former name : "Churchyard" (O. and M. 1677).
   The land was granted to the parish in 1615 for a cemetery, and the street was formed out of it at the same time (Strype, ed. 1720, I. ii. 93).
   The churchyard is nicely laid out as a garden.
