Allen, Thomas
1827

This ward, which is situated in the central part of the city, derives its name from the Saxon chepe, a market, this being the place where the second London market appears to have been originally established, East Chepe being the first.

It is bounded on the east by Broad-street and Wallbrook wards; on the north by Bassishaw and Coleman-street wards; on the west by Queenhithe and Cripplegate wards; and on the south by Cordwainer-street ward. It contains the nine following precincts: St. Mary-le-Bow, Allhallows, Honey lane; St. Lawrence Cateaton-street; St. Martin Ironmonger lane; St. Mary Colechurch, St. Mildred Poultry, St. Stephen and St. Benet, and St. Pancras Sopar lane. It is under the government of an alderman, and returns twelve inhabitants to the court of common council. Before the great fire in 1666, there were seven churches in this ward, viz. Allhallows, Honey lane, St. Benet Sherehog, St, Martin Pomery, St. Mary Colechurch, St. Pancras Sopars, St. Lawrence Jewry, and St. Mildred the virgin; the first five were not rebuilt.
