COLEMAN STREET (WARD OF). One of the 26 wards of London, and so called from the street of that name. Coleman-street, Lothbury, Moorgate-street, and Finsbury-circus, originally formed the "Lower Walks of Moorfields." Stow enumerates three churches in this ward:- St. Olave Upwell, in Old Jewry; St. Margaret, Lothbury; and St. Stephen, Coleman-street. These three churches were rebuilt after the Great Fire.
