Walbrook Ward

"WALBROOK, is a street on the west side of the Mansion-house and extends from, Charlotte-row to Cannon-street, and Dowgate-hill. It derives its name from an ancient rivulet, called Wall-brook, on account of its entering the city through the wall, between Bishopsgate and Moorgate, which after many turnings, ran down this street, and emptied itself into the Thames, near Dowgate. It is now covered over, and used as a common sewer. WALBROOK WARD derives its name from the before-named street, and is bounded on the east by Langbourn and Candlewick Wards, on the north by Cheap Ward, on the west by Cordwainer's Ward, and on the south by Dowgate Ward." [J. Elme , A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831)- transcribed by Gareth Hicks]
