This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Time'. Its title appears on the left side of the plate, along with an illustrated view of the parish church of St Christopher, and the heraldic arms of Francis Cokayne, Alderman of Cornhill ward. Illustrated views of the churches of St Bartholomew and St Bennet Fink appear down the right side of the plate. Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 1736 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches'.
