Camomile Street lay south of the city wall from Bevis Marks to Bishopsgate Street. Camomile Street is the seventeenth century name for a street that was nameless when Stow wrote his Survey of London. Stow merely calls it the streete which runneth by the north ende of saint Marie streete. He does note that the street had become a less favourable place to live. There were a number of small tenements, letten out to strangers, and other meane people, a far cry from the fifteenth century when nobles like the Earl of Oxford owned land there (Stow).
Camomile Street is shown on the Agas map running from St. Augustine Papey to Bishopsgate but, like Stow’s account, it is unnamed. The street, complete with its modern name, does feature on Richard Blome’s 1720 map of Lime Street Ward (Blome).
