This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Time'. Its title features in cartouche at lower left, with the arms of Sir Robert Ladbroke, Alderman of Baynord Castle, and William Bridgen, Alderman of Farringdon Within, at bottom left. The compass star appears at bottom centre. An illustrated view of St Bennet's Church is at top left, with St Martin's Church at top right and St Andrew's church at bottom right. Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 1736 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches'. Farringdon Ward was divided into Farringdon Within and Farringdon Without in 1394 because "the governance thereof is too laborious and grievous for one person to occupy and duly govern the same."
