In old times this was a manor or lordship, forming one of the prebends of St. Paul's Cathedral, now a Metropolitan borough outside the city boundary.
   It occupied the site of the "Moor" so called in early records, without the postern of Moorgate and Cripplegate.
   The name survives in Finsbury Circus, Finsbury Pavement, etc.
   A court baron of the Mayor and citizens for the Manor of Finsbury was held in 1636 ; Grub Street, Golden Lane, and Whitecross Street were included within the manor (L. and P. Chas. I. 1636-7, p. 389).
