"BROAD-St.-Bldgs., are the north continuation of Old, and part of New Broad- street, and lead into Liverpool-street. These streets give name to the ward wherein they stand, which is bounded on the north and east by Bishopsgate Ward; on the west by Coleman-street Ward; and on the south by Cornhill Ward. . . The most remarkable buildings are, the parish churches of St. Christopher, St. Bennett's Fink, St, Martin's Outwich, St. Peter's le Poor, and Allhallows in the Wall, Carpenters' Hall, Drapers' Hall, Merchant Tailors' Hall, the Bank of England, the South Sea House, and Pinners' Hall. This ward is under the government of an alderman, (Sir John Perring, Bart.) a deputy, and nine other common-councilmen, and other ward officers."[J. Elmes, A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Gareth Hicks]
