Aldgate Street ran slightly south-west from Aldgate until it reached a pump, formerly a sweet well. At that point, the street forked into two streets. The northern branch, called Aldgate Street, ran west until it ran into Cornhill at Lime Street. At an earlier point in history, Cornhill seems to have extended east past Lime Street because the church of St. Andrew Undershaft was called St. Andrew upon Cornhill (Harben). At some point in the 1620s, the eastern end of Cornhill and the western end of Aldgate Street were renamed Leadenhall Street (Harben).
The Agas map does not name Aldgate Street. It is not clear if the label Aldegate refers to the gate or the street. Either way, Aldgate Street (like Aldgate Ward) takes its name from Aldgate.
