Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The City of London was divided into wards for the purpose of government as early as Norman times. The wards had responsibility to keep the peace, supervise trade and oversee sanitation, and each ward has the right to elect an Alderman and Commoners to sit in the Court of Common Council. Farringdon Within Ward is bounded on the north by Farringdon Without and Aldersgate Without wards, on the east by Aldersgate Ward Within, Cripplegate Ward and Bread Street Ward, south by Castle Baynard Ward and the Thames, and west by Farringdon Ward Without.

A school was established in 1705 by the inhabitants of the ward at the west end of Bull and Mouth Street, nearly facing Butcher Hall Lane. It amalgamated with Aldersgate Ward School in 1875.
