Whitechapel

Whitechapel was a street running east-west to the Aldgate Bars from the east. Stow comments that the street, like Aldgate Street, was fully replenished with buildings outward, & also pestered with diuerse Allyes, on eyther side (Stow). Whitechapel Street may have been another name for Aldgate Street (without Aldgate) (Harben). However, there is no indication that this was the case in 1598; in fact, Stow uses high street (another name for Aldgate Street from the Aldgate Bars to Aldgate) and Whitechapel independently (Stow).
A small section of Whitechapel’s west end, though not named, is drawn on the Agas map. It is found east of TheBarres and runs to the edge of the map.
Whitechapel became a municipal district in the seventeenth century. It was in this district that the 1888 Jack the Ripper murders took place (Harben).
