This ward derives its appellation from one of the ancient gates of the city; it is divided into two districts, called Aldersgate Within and Aldersgate Without, from their respective situations: the former contains the four precincts of St. Leonard, Foster-lane, St. John Zachary, St. Mary Staining, and St. Anne. The latter is also divided into four precincts, all within the parish of St. Botolph. This ward is bounded on the east and north by Cripplegate ward, on the west by the wards of Farringdon Within and Without, and on the south by that of Farringdon Within. It contains eight precincts, four in each division, and is governed by an alderman and eight common councilmen. Before the great fire in 1666 there were six churches in this ward, viz.:--St. John Zachary, situate at the corner of Maiden-lane, in Foster-lane; St. Mary Staining, at the north end of Staining-lane; St. Olave, Silver-street, at the north-east corner of Noble-street; St. Anne, Aldersgate, in St. Anne's-lane; St. Botolph, at the south-east corner of Little Britain, in Aldersgate-street; and St. Leonard, Foster-lane, situated on the west side of Foster-lane; which six, at present, are reduced to two churches, viz. St. Anne's and St. Botolph's.
