"COLEMAN-St., Lothbury, is the north continuation of the Old Jewry from Cheapside, bearing to the right, and extending to No. 53, Fore- street, Cripplegate. This street gives its name to the ward in which it is situated. Coleman-street Ward is bounded on the north by Cripplegate Ward, the south part of Finsbury and Bishopsgate Ward; on the east by Bishopsgate, Broad-street and Cheap Wards; on the south by Cheap Ward; and on the west by Bassishaw Ward. It extends from the church in Lothbury to Ironmonger-lane, and from Moorgate to Grocers'-hall-gardens. . . This ward is governed by an alderman, Sir John Perring, Bart., a deputy, and nine other common councilmen, and other ward officers." [J.
